If this Excel spreadsheet doesn’t scare you and your eyes haven’t glazed over yet, keep reading. . . .

For some of us, numbers and spreadsheets are our friend and we have no problems working with them.  Unfortunately, for the majority of the people involved in ministry, this is not the case.  We have amazing staff and student leaders who are gifted at connecting with students, sharing the gospel and organizing events.  Many of these leaders stumble over the very necessary but often tedious financial aspects of ministry with dire consequences. In effect, we impact the hearts and lives of students by providing the skills, training, and services that are needed to steward our financial resources.

If your gifting is in the area of finance and accounting, would you consider using your gifts to serve with us?

  • Create budgets to best steward the allocation of the funds that God provides to our ministry
  • Track the spending of our teams and ministries to ensure they are staying within the budget parameters
  • Create reports and reconcile accounts to help monitor all of the financial activity
  • Approve and process payments to vendors and individuals
  • Oversee finances for national events:  conferences, events, and summer projects
  • Train and equip staff to lead in finances on their campuses and summer projects
