Is Your Mission-Based Organization’s Growth Hiding a Dark Secret?

The goal of any mission-based organization is to grow in influence and have a greater positive impact on the world. However, when growth does begin to ramp up, it’s both an achievement and an obstruction.

With growth comes complexity. Everything from staffing to operations to marketing becomes more challenging. But accounting is the area where the stress is felt most acutely.

With Growth Comes Complexity

As congregations grow, it makes more sense for churches to establish new locations and spread the word to new communities. Social media and new marketing strategies are helping organizations grow to new locations and new audiences. The rise and ease of giving through smart phones and mobile devices is helping fuel this growth. A marked rise in volunteering is helping spread the good works of these churches, and demonstrate their importance to the community.

One such challenge is the court ruling in November that declared church-provided, tax-free housing allowances for ministers unconstitutional. The appeal of this ruling may be very good news for the ministry due to the impending strain the additional expenses and reduction in income would cause.
