Ministry Shares

Joel Boot signed a letter stating the 2013 formaula for Share amounts per active members.

Do you know of any established Reserve Fund Guidelines?

I was wondering if any churches have any established guidelines for how to deal with reserve funds/surplus funds. How much is too much etc. What do you base the number that is acceptable on? revenue, expenses, assets? any other ideas?
