Church Finances

Rev. Dr. Neill Tolboom
Senior Pastor, Morristown, NJ United Methodist Church
Time:  9:30 am – 12:00 noon
Location:  Ehinger Center, Room 109

What did Jesus talk about most; the Kingdom of God and money?  Most of us like to talk about Kingdom theology but not many of us enjoy the financial management side of the church.  Church finances involve using financial resources in a socially responsible, discipline building, theologically sound manner.  To complete this mandate, in an increasingly complex world, we need to constantly upgrade our financial literacy.  In this class we will touch on new insights into tithing, responsible investing, expense control and monitoring, endowment management, giving units and debt alternatives.  Instruction will include the use of games, case studies and visual learning.
