Item description for Remember the Future: Financial Leadership and Asset Management for Congregations by Gerald W. Keucher...

A primer for churches on sound asset managment by an Episcopal priest and Controller of the Dioceses of New York. Remember the Future is a result of years of hands-on consulting work with struggling congregations by Jerry Keucher, who served on the staff of the Diocese of New York for 13 years. Keucher notes that many, if not most, congregations in mainline churches have declined in the past forty years and that this shrinkage in numbers "has deeply affected the psyches" of congregational leaders. Using a positive tone and attitude to help congregations imagine health instead of decline, Keucher offers clear, step-by-step methods and advice on analyzing and managing all aspects of congregational assets.

Publishers Description
Keucher's primer on sound asset management encourages leaders of congregations to remember the future when they're making decisions so that the needs of the present are balanced against what's best for the long term.

Reviews - What do customers think about Remember the Future: Financial Leadership and Asset Management for Congregations?

A Treasure  Mar 23, 2006
What I like about it:
1. Keucher puts all the financial stuff in the context of the larger horizon of total care of the parish.
2. It eschews financial jargon and uses normal English to explain the issues very simply and understandably.
3. It explains the issues simply and straightforward so that the reader gets an understanding of the issues and their implications - that is, why the church councilperson should care.
4. It is fun to read.
5. There are not a lot of numbers that might be off-putting.
6. It clearly explains why the lay leadership of the parish should care about the finances and provides them the way of understanding the issues.
7. Church council members will have sufficient knowledge and understanding to ask thoughtful and important questions of the Treasurer and Investment Managers.
I highly recommend the book for clergy, members of church councils and interested members of churches. Keucher uses not-for-profit organizations as examples of what he is explaining so it could be read with great benefit by members of advisory committees of not-for-profits also.
