Financing a Church Plant
The number one reason church plants die prematurely is because of the lack of finances. Insufficient funds will strangle a new church from the beginning and cause immense stress to you and your family. Attention should be given to adequately fund a church plant for it to be healthy and long-lasting.
Handling the Church Finances
One of the best ways a church plant can gain its credibility is by how they handle the church funds. Sadly, one of the main areas the world feels the church is corrupt is in how churches keep their books. Sound financial policies will help eliminate any concerns people might have when it comes to the churches giving. This is also a great way to build credibility in other areas. If they feel you are trustworthy with money, then you can be trusted elsewhere.
