In the last 4 1/2 years I have conducted over 80 church health consults across 5 nations.
During a consult I analyse 12 separate, yet connected, pathways in the life of the church. One of those is the financial pathway.
Due to my lack of financial training it’s not an in-depth audit. I don’t provide training in understanding balance sheets or P and L statements, nor do I provide reporting mechanisms such as monthly expenditure reports or a church cash flow template.
Those are beyond my expertise so I provide a leader’s view of trends and major focal points. One of the key areas I explore is the church’s cash flow.
Cash flow impacts pastors
I know that the church cash flow will have a significant and measurable affect upon a pastor’s emotional well-being and upon their leadership life.
