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.
This is starting a series on the Art of Being Cheap. Hopefully you’ll learn a little about thinking like a cheap accountant in order to save money on things that are unnecessary. We’ll start with looking at church credit cards.
If I had three pieces of advise I could give to a Finance Committee heading into the budget season, this would be that advice. You’ll end up with a better budget that the church should be more willing to live by.
