Property & Finance Committee Mandate: What Should We Know?

  191 views

Our Church is in the midst of transition and we are looking to re-establish what it means to be a committee that takes care of the Property and the Finances of the church. Do we keep this group of people together as one entity or split it into two groups? How many people should be in the group? Who should be on this committee, must it be Council members? What ought this group do? Are there any legal obligations? 

As you can see we are looking to see what other churches are doing in this aspect of Church Administration. So...what do you do?

If you look under Church Admin & Finance, Ministry Organization and look at the resources, you will find a sample mandate for an Administration Team.  The Finance Team is a subset of this team that meets when needed for budget and stewardship related matters. 

The Building and Grounds Team is also a subset of this team in this model and usually meets monthly, often working on projects for part or all of their scheduled time.  A member of the Administration Team serves on the Finance Team (a sample mandate also on the site under Finance resources) and a member serves on the Building and Grounds Team in addition to a member serving on the Personnel Team in this model. The Administration Team is a subset of Council so you have a council connect for both of your teams.
