Today I had an administrator ask me if a record retention schedule was available to help churches. The answer is YES!
This record retention schedule will assist you with financial record storage requirements and also with minutes and administrative record retention. This is for the US and I'm checking on possible differences in Canada. Let me know if you have other helpful ideas for managing your church records. I also had someone ask about baptism and profession of faith records. I think most churches keep these indefinitely so this would fall under the "permanent" category.
