Item description for Church Administration and Finance Manual: Resources for Leading the Local Church by Otto Crumroy, Stanley J. Kukawa & Stan Kukawka...
Overview As a pastor, you probably feel equipped to handle worship, preaching, and pastoral care. But when it comes to budgets, fire safety, and church management, do you find yourself at a loss? Relax! This field-tested, comprehensive manual takes the mystery out of everything from employee records to financial planning and building insurance.
Pastors generally feel equipped to deal with biblical studies, theological questions, preaching responsibilities, and pastoral care. But when it comes to budgets, insurance, fire safety, and church management many find themselves at a loss. Often lay leaders within the congregation flounder with these tasks as well. Here, finally, is the ultimate reference guide for the practical management of the parish.
Originally created as a sourcebook for the authors' week-long course on church management and administration at the Claremont School of Theology, the manual in draft version has been field-tested by hundreds of pastors and lay leaders. Not simply a theoretical resource, the Manual provides suggestions for almost every aspect of parish administration: position descriptions, various financial forms, materials for stewardship and Christian education, building use and safety issues, employee record keeping, and much more. Whether pastors are just out of seminary or well-seasoned in parish life, the Manual is full of excellent guidelines, tools, and forms for improving the management of the parish.

Great resource book for the church office Dec 14, 2006
Every church secretary/office manager should have this book. You can spend a lot of time comiling all this information yourself, but as most secretaries know...time is a very precious commodity and there never seems to be enough of it. This book is definately a time saver because it has resources, help and information for just about everything you encounter in church administration. It is well worth the investment.
An Essential Tool for Lay Leaders Aug 18, 2000
An amazing resource for every congregation! As a senior minister of a growing congregation, my challenge is to use the time and talents of lay leaders effectively. When our growing staff required better personnel procedures and records, Church Administration made it possible for a brand new committee chair to quickly understand what was needed and put a system into place. Why re-invent the wheel when this book by church management experts offers exactly what you need to get the job done. We've saved weeks of committee work--and had more time for ministry. Every church board needs a copy of this book.
A great resource, with helpful sample forms and good advice. Mar 13, 1999
A huge timesaver for anyone involved in church administration, either as an ordained leader, member of a church's board/vestry, or church secretary/administrator. This book is accessable and clear, full of practical advice and very useful forms and policy "boilerplate." These forms save a lot of time and trouble, because you don't have to re-invent the wheel whenever you need a hiring policy or a church facility use agreement form. In addition, this work has a visible spiritual and scriptural core.
While this book was largely written by Methodists, as an Episcopalian I've found it very easy to adapt to my own church polity. It is used by my vestry and my seminary! I would definitely recommend that your church own a copy.
