From Water Into Wine (Budgeting)


From Water Into Wine: A Practical and Pastoral Approach to Turn Resources Into Impact

Not too long ago a Parish Finance Committee Chair suggested parishes don’t need to budget.  “God will provide” he said.  While it is true that God will provide, that doesn’t absolve us of our responsibility to be good stewards of the gifts, or in this case, financial resources, He has given us. Better yet, if we want to actually “Go and Make Disciples”  we will need to ensure we have the resources available and that those resources are aligned to support the mission. The budgeting process when well designed and collaboratively implemented will do just that. This presentation will walk through the who, what, how and why of budgeting, while also identifying the pitfalls along the budget journey. Purchase includes a notebook with resources selected by the presenter.
