Overview

Money Matters in Church is your one-stop source of information on creating a culture of giving that supports savvy, faithful, and legal financial practices. The authors take you into the heart of a biblical theology of stewardship, teaching you how to develop donors and maximize contributions. You'll discover systems, policies, and structures for
• developing a strategic budget
• enacting an effective audit process
• projecting income and expenses
• working with banks
• paying staff
• addressing debt

Malphurs and Stroope also detail the steps for preparing, implementing, and following through on a capital fundraising campaign. Response questions at the end of each chapter help you assimilate the material and serve as a powerful springboard for small group or staff discussions.

"Aubrey Malphurs and Steve Stroope have developed a 'how to' manual that not only gives the biblical support for teaching about money, but also reveals the step-by-step process of developing a community of givers and an attitude of gratitude in your church."--Ed Young, senior pastor, Fellowship Church; author, Outrageous, Contagious Joy

"In this excellent book by Aubrey Malphurs and Steve Stroope, you will be exposed to both the solid biblical principles and the sound financial practices necessary for effective growth in a church of any size."--Bob Buford, founder, Leadership Network; author, Halftime and Finishing Well

"This fine work will provide pastors with a critical tool for understanding and addressing the financial needs of their churches. It's a practical book that will fill a void that has existed for too long in the training of pastors for their fiscal management role in the church."--Tony Evans, senior pastor, Oakcliff Bible Fellowship

"Few seminaries teach it, and fewer pastors find financial expertise in their nature or skill set. But strong financial management couldn't be more important to the success and health of a church. Money Matters in Church fills a much-needed gap of understanding for pastors and lay leaders."--Ronald E. Keener, editor, Church Executive magazine
