Finances and Ministry
The day is an important one for many ministry leaders.
"I come to Minister's Enrichment Day because it does what it says - encourages and enriches," said Pastor Brendan Saunders of Lighthouse Community Church in Old Saybrook, CT. "Both morning sessions hit exactly on what I am dealing with in my ministry."
This fall's general sessions and workshops focus on financial decisions in ministry and give helpful tips for wisdom in stewardship.
Keynote speaker James Rickard has more than 40 years of business management and accounting experience. He travels across the country speaking to pastors and churches on family finance, estate planning, leadership, church finance, and clergy income tax issues. He serves as Director of the
Stewardship Services Foundation, an organization that provides tax preparation services for pastors and missionaries.
Three general sessions are scheduled, as well as a workshop hour, with three hands-on classes to choose from.
Workshop speakers include Tom Bevan, Executive Director of the BBC Foundation, BBS faculty member Dr. Bill Arp, and adjunct BBC faculty member and gifted women's Bible teacher Joanna Arp.
Workshops will discuss church budgeting and principles from I Timothy 6, giving attendees practical take-home tips.
Register for the day here.
