The best feeling in the world is seeing a church overcome the obstacles of church finances so that they can better care for their mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ. With that in mind, I’m providing free resources for improving your church or non-profit’s financial position. I’m Jeff Pospisil. Since 2003, I’ve been immersed in the church/non-profit world of accounting. Primarily I’ve worked with United Methodist churches in the Dakotas and have seen some great results. I hope this helps you and your church.
