Your Growing Church Needs a Better Perspective on Accounting

A growing church is a blessing, but can be a challenge too. When membership soars from a few hundred to a few thousand church operations take on an entirely new character. Accounting becomes far more complex as both donations and expenses multiply. Plus, administrators have to juggle that extra accounting on top of the day-to-day needs of an expanding ministry. Needless to say, growing pains are common.

How a Mission Organization Uses Technology to Increase Visibility and Impact

In 1972, Sharon Johnson went to Haiti to direct a choir that was traveling around the country. As she looked into the faces in the crowds, she fell in love with the people of Haiti. She returned each year with her husband, Bob, and over time, they felt the need to provide the people of Haiti with help every day and not just once or twice a year. In 1983 they formed what is today Mission of Hope: Haiti (MOH).

Officially founded in 1998, MOH has since grown from a small mission located on a barren piece of land, to a fruitful organization that now houses an onsite orphanage, medical facility, school, and church. Through partnerships, MOH also serves outside of its property by helping other orphanages, churches, and schools throughout the country.

Church Finance: 3 Reasons to Dig Yourself out of Excel

Do You Have the POWER?

Since the inception of Excel, almost 30 years ago, Microsoft has been improving the computing power of the spreadsheet. As business intelligence requirements emerged, the need for unique calculations - graphing and macros (automating tasks in a spreadsheet) - became instrumental in the process of gathering and reporting data. For many years, analysts have lived and breathed in Excel. Excel provided users with the ability to produce results with automated computing power.  For those buried in the data, this was a life saver.
