Regional Gatherings for Church Treasurers

Welcome to our new series of regional gatherings for church treasurers!

Please join us for a cup of coffee and conversation that will help define your role as church treasurer and answer all those questions you might have. Church treasurers and assistant treasurers are all welcome. The programs will run from 9 a.m. until noon on Saturdays, and are facilitated by Rev. Dr. Jonathan New, Associate Conference Minister for Stewardship and Finance. There is no charge to attend, but please sign up so we know how many to expect. Topics will include:

  • Resources for treasurers
  • Exploring the roles and responsibilities of a church treasurer
  • Understanding your church as a 501c3 corporation
  • Tax and legal issues including:

    contributions and fundraising
    staff compensation
    types of funds
    reporting compliance and exemptions

  • Rethinking the budget process
  • Managing legal and financial risks
  • Please note that basic bookkeeping practices will not be covered during these gatherings.
