Experience shows that churches that are open and transparent engender a greater feeling of trust and willingness on the part of donors. Financial Management for Episcopal Parishes defines the roles of the clergy, staff, vestry, and congregation in the establishment of a transparent and functioning set of checks and balances that can be implemented by any size church. The book is laced with real-life examples of processes and procedures that did and did not work, helping readers to identify with their own church experience and apply the information to their own setting.
