Outsourcing your bookkeeping and accounting to Clergy Financial Resources means you get all the benefits of a full-time bookkeeper — at a fraction of the cost and without the hassle of recruiting, hiring, training, and managing another staff member. We take care of all that and give you your time back to focus on your ministry — secure your confidence that your books will be accurate and armed with the financial team to get your jobs done right.
Why Outsource Bookkeeping & Accounting?
In-house talent is great, but the financial realities for most small and mid-sized churches limit what you can afford to hire. For most small churches, the choice is either a reasonably skilled part-timer or a full-time employee who’s enthusiastic and reliable but doesn’t have specialized knowledge or expertise.
Done right, outsourcing your bookkeeping and accounting allows you to purchase a higher level of skill and a comprehensive array of services and functions, but at a fractional cost. And unlike with that part-timer who’s available only certain days of the week or month, with Clergy Financial Resources, you’re not captive to individuals and their calendars. With Clergy Financial Resources, you get the benefits of a dedicated individual, plus the support of a full team.
In addition, outsourcing your bookkeeping and accounting gives you some benefits you can’t get from either a part-time or a full-time employee.
