Find the Best Ways to Talk about Money
How does your congregation feel about money? Do they love thrift or like to take risks? Do they focus on process? Are they competitive? Are they a mixture of any of these?
When starting to preach or talk about your church’s finances, it’s best to understand your church’s culture, mindset, and financial setting. This will help you plan and communicate better with them.
In this book, you’ll also find biblical principles to study and use to preach about money and to encourage people to become generous givers.
Talking about money is also easier when you gather the right people to put together a budget and create a financial team that understands money and mission and aims to:
Develop a budget around ministry categories
Consider a zero-based budgeting approach
Keep everyone accountable
Monitor the finances
Communicate the financial picture
Allow room for growth
This book will help guide you through understanding all this and much more.
