Leader: Bonnie Ives Marden

Your financial policies protect your ministry, prevent potential conflicts, and provide important information about decisions previous or current leaders want future leaders to honor. Discover the power of policies to build trust, transparency and generosity. Avoid surprises and internal conflicts by planning ahead and defining, for example, expectations about shared users of your property or of a future financial bequest. Discover how even your annual audit positively impacts generosity and giving.
During this webinar we consider the following policies: building use, financial procedures, endowment definitions, gift acceptance criteria, memorial funds, pastor discretionary fund and child protection/safe sanctuary policies as well as some aspects of audit/review preparation. Discover the impact well executed policy statements have on donors and on ministry partners.
Policy samples are available online and in Church Finances for Missional Leaders: Best Practices for Financial Stewardship, Nashville, Wesley Foundry, 2019.
