Effective Business Practices Applied to Church Administration Intentional Growth Center

Effective Business Practices Applied to Church Administration

There is ample evidence of the need for ordained, diaconal, and laity training in leadership and management of small membership churches. The greatest request from pastors seeking guidance in church administration is for help deciphering financial information and budgeting. On the other hand, pastors of small membership churches that are successful take great care in marketing, sales, and promotion. A good understanding of business as it relates to the church will help a church to overcome financial challenges and to continue to grow and spread the joy of Jesus Christ. Effective Business Practices is designed to give you just that. Learn More.
