The very next thing you need to do if you are about to start a new Church or are currently on staff at a Church is approach your fellow staff members and suggest outsourcing your accounting function to a qualified accounting firm. Outsourcing works for start-up Churches, small Churches, medium Churches, and even Mega-Churches. You didn’t decide to get into the ministry because you are passionate about Church finance. Pastors don’t get up in the morning excited to fire up their computer and plow into their Church’s budget in Excel. Pastors get into the ministry because God called them to lead others to Christ in their capacity as a minister of the gospel.
