Who needs to understand more about church business and finance? Everyone!
This book is written for church leaders and members, offering a basic guide to the business side of church ministry: finances (personal and church), planning and budgeting, salaries, legal matters, and more. Reading this book will not make you an expert in financial matters, but you will gain a working understanding of these topics and practical tools that you can implement in your church and personal life. With this basic knowledge, both the church body and the leadership can help protect and safeguard the ministry God has given them.
