You need to know exactly how to prepare a church budget.
It’s not like allocating your personal finances.
There are specific church budget guidelines that, if unfollowed, could destroy a church.
If your church is financially desperate, it’s most likely because you have too many visionaries who don’t care about best practices for your church financial plan..
If you don’t know how to create a church budget, it doesn’t matter if you receive a $5 million gift. It will be swallowed up by poor practices. "Why should a fool have money in his hand to buy wisdom when he has no sense?” (Pro. 16:16)
If you have a strategic church budget, you can accomplish your strategic missions.
If you have more visionaries than administrators, you are running headfirst into a brick wall. And when the crash comes, you will not recover from the hit.
I hope the crash hasn’t already come for you.
