Bookkeeping for Churches

Do you find yourself spending more time and effort on daily accounting tasks and software issues rather than on making important decisions to run your church? Handling your own bookkeeping can quickly take over, letting other responsibilities fall through the cracks. Let Clergy Financial Resources help you get back on track by managing your bookkeeping allowing you to do what you do best and keep your ministry thriving.

Church bookkeeping is complicated. There are a lot of tasks, laws, forms, and calculations. With so many things to remember, it’s easy to make a mistake. You should not take bookkeeping errors lightly. 

You are probably not alone if the daily bookkeeping process is your most stressful time of the week. Whether you are the church bookkeeper, treasurer, or human resources professional, managing the church finances can be challenging. 

When it’s time to choose your bookkeeping provider, asking the right questions can help you choose the right partner for your church. Questions such as “Do you understand the church bookkeeping, chart of accounts, and designated funds?” These answers will help you determine whether the provider has in-depth knowledge of the specific challenges your church may be facing and whether they will help your church with its compliance challenges.

Selecting a company may seem easy at first. The greatest challenge for the church in selecting a company is finding someone who is truly qualified in church bookkeeping.  Knowledge and experience are critical and ministry leaders must understand these challenges and recognize the need for industry specialists.

We have unparalleled expertise on the complex issues associated with church bookkeeping, payroll, clergy tax law, and clergy compensation. Our qualified support and staff offer the church a valuable resource throughout the year.
