The financial responsibilities of managing and leading a church can be a lot to handle at some points. Every pastor understands the struggle of managing a budget that is sufficient for each ministry area. At the same time, receipts may be forgotten about, unexpected expenses may arise, and the economy may take a plummet. With all of the financial responsibilities that a pastor is tasked with, what is the role of the church board in this effort? In this video, we cover leading a church board financially.
When faced with financial responsibilities, there is a temptation to dump them on the church board. As a pastor, it is important to realize that you are the financial leader in the church. You are the one who must lead the way financially. Your board can help you determine solutions, but ultimately, you are responsible for the finances of the church.
