How your church builds and presents your "church budget" – and even what you call it – can motivate increased generosity.
Concrete guidance for church leaders charged with borrowing money.

Church Financial Resources
Effective church finances will advance your mission. Effective financial practices will enhance trust, grow giving, and free people's energy and creativity to focus on mission. This is your one-stop "how to" resource section for Church Finance leaders, especially:
• in smaller churches without paid professional financial management staff
• volunteers called to serve in financial management and oversight roles
Your Conference is a primary resource. It connects with church practices and resources in your area, as well as state regulations. Many have Church Finance resources on their websites or available through their offices.
Do you have resources you can share to enhance this site? Are there other resources you'd like to see? Send an email message to Doris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it - lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, 'This man began to build and was not able to finish'?"
