2020-2021 Church Administration & Finance Guide


In every congregation, Christian Reformed men and women  use gifts of organization, administration, budgeting, accounting, and more to provide for the orderly functioning of the church. Without people providing these gifts to a congregation, the church would be unable to succeed at its other programs and gospel outreach. 

The resources in this booklet are intended to be a guide for these tasks. While they are not exhaustive, they help to address some of the most commonly asked questions we receive from congregations. They also provide the latest 2020-2021 data for your use.

Resources include:

  • Important Dates and Schedule of Reporting
  • Ministry Shares Information (current system and "reimagined")
  • Remittance Forms
  • Ministers’ Pension 
  • Ministers Compensation Survey
  • Financial Shalom 
  • Denominational Ministries 
  • Denominational Offering Calendar 
  • Accredited Agencies 
  • Ignite: Funding Ministry Innovation 

One copy of this guide was sent to every Christian Reformed Church in August 2020. Additional copies can be ordered from Faith Alive. You can also download the PDF below.
