What Books or Web Resources Are Recommended for Persons Working With Canadian Church Budgets and Finances?

  65 views

I am going to be working on the processes involved in our church's finances. Does anyone have any resources (Internet, books) that they recommend? I'm from a Canadian church. Also, I would like to offer a session for those who are not used to reading budgets and financial sheets so they can have a greater comfort level when reviewing the budget.. Is there anything out there that you have used?

Thanks, Victoria

Have you checked with Crown Financial Ministries? They're a Christian Canadian group teaching personal finance and stewardship, but maybe they could head you in the right direction? http://crowncanada.ca

Note: I am not affiliated with Crown Financial Ministries in any way, nor have I ever really used their curriculum. We currently use Financial Peace University, from Dave Ramsey to teach personal finance and stewardship in our church... from the U.S., but they do provide supplemental resources for Canadians.

Thanks!  I can't believe 3 years later I am looking for the same resources again :)  If anyone else is interested the group is now called Compass and their website is under review at the moment.  For Canadians I strongly recommend the Canadian Council of Christian Charities www.CCCC.org   Their is a fee based on the size of your church.  I have used it in connection with another charity and it was invaluable.

 

Blessings, Victoria
