Item description for Basic Business Principles for Growing Churches: Accounting and Administrative Guidelines That Promote Church Growth by Arnold Cirtin...

Overview
Pastors are schooled in theology and ministry, but few receive training in the fine points of church administration. Learning how to handle a congregation's finances "on the job" can be a harrowing experience. Yet efficiently managing your church's business affairs is a key element in keeping current members satisfied with their pastoral leadership -- and in attracting the new members you need for your church to grow in size and influence. In Basic Business Principles For Growing Churches, Arnold Cirtin shares expertise gained from more than four decades of corporate and academic experience. He provides a clear and helpful primer for pastors with limited training in business administration on such practical topics as accounting, fiscal management, and marketing. This is an indispensable book for pastors of small- and medium-sized churches (who typically are also their congregations' principal financial officers), as well as for church treasurers, trustees, and other financial board members. When you follow the guidelines in Basic Business Principles For Growing Churches, your church will be fiscally responsible, managed efficiently, and able to maximize its growing stewardship of God's resources.

Reviews - What do customers think about Basic Business Principles for Growing Churches: Accounting and Administrative Guidelines That Promote Church Growth?

Financial Guidelines for Small to Medium Sized Churches  May 29, 2006
I like this book very much for several reasons. However, a key element that I would like to focus on is the section on Internal Controls. In some ways the role of a senior pastor is an impossible job. When the new pastor is suddenly responsible to hire new staff, lead a building program, fend off a lawsuit and raise funds for new programs, he may wish for his seminary days again.

Many pastors have never had even an Introduction to Business Class. They certainly never had time in their preparation to take an accounting class. No matter how intelligent or how Godly the pastor is, he is vulnerable in the area of church finances. When the church is unable to hire accountants, the business practices can be sloppy or non-existent. Many times the person who will take some responsibility from us is seen as an answer to prayer. Especially if it is in an area that we don't enjoy or don't understand very well.

In this book, Dr. Cirtin does a great job of stressing separation of duties. The young pastor could save himself much embarrassment and perhaps his pastoral career by studying, understanding and implementing this section. This book is straightforward and easy to understand. There is in this small paper back guidelines to church finances that will allow the pastor to concentrate on being a pastor. And while he is sharing truth from the Bible, his church will be practicing truth in the office.

This book is a lifeline for the small to medium sized churches that do not have the budget for an accountant or financial manager.
