The Finance Ministry at Christ Community Church serves to act as the church’s conduit to carrying out the daily activities necessary to receive, to record, to manage and distribute the church’s financial resources. The Finance Ministry has put into place an adequate checks-and-balances system to ensure internal financial controls are in place to safeguard the church’s financial resources.
Christ Community Church utilizes an annual Operating Financial Budget to guide annual spending throughout the various ministries within the church. Each ministry staff leader and each ministry team within the church organization presents a proposed annual budget to the Business Administrator. The Finance Ministry takes the various teams’ budgets and compiles a church operating budget. The budget is reviewed by the Business Administrator and the Senior Pastor for accuracy and possible adjustment prior to presenting to the Finance Team. The Finance Team scrutinizes the proposed operating budget before final presentation to the church for approval.
Each month individual ministry financial reports are prepared and delivered to each ministry staff leader and each ministry team chairperson for review. A complete financial report is prepared monthly and reviewed by the Business Administrator and Senior Pastor. Quarterly financial reports are prepared and presented to the Finance Team for accountability, review and approval.
