In today’s environment, the need for churches to operate by the highest standards of financial integrity has never been greater.
“Overlook the foundations of financial integrity, and your church is headed for a world of hurt. All it takes is even the perception of wrongdoing for ministry to come to a screeching halt,” says Michael Martin, ECFA’s vice president of church relations. “On the other hand, watch your ministry accelerate as trust is enhanced through demonstrating financial integrity and accountability.”
Ready to assess where your church stands? Use this ECFA checklist as your guide in addressing 10 foundational areas that are key to operating with excellence and integrity.
