Church Business Resources
As a result of requests and questions directed to the SCBI Business Office, we have prepared this guide to assist churches in their financial operations. Our thanks to Richard Broome and Clarence Hackett for their permission to use excerpts from similar guides.
This guide does not include every financial issue that may be faced by the church. If we can provide any help on these or other business matters, please contact Kyle Brennan or Mary Brown.
