Financial Resources Course

Building Financial Resources for Ministry

A Course developed by the Mid-Atlantic Foundation of the UMC, Inc., Stewardship and Investment Management

September 29 (evening) and September 30

This course is open to all.
CSM affiliation is not required.

Financial leadership in the church exists to serve The Church’s mission. It’s essential for every church’s future. But financial ministry is an area in which many (perhaps most!) laity lack adequate training. This course will provide you with a clear understanding of church finance, of which every leader should be aware, and equip you with the tools to build financial resources for ministry.   
This course is accredited as an Advanced Course in Leadership for Christ Servant Ministers and is certified by the EPAUMC Conference. Attendance at all sessions on September 29 (evening) and September 30 is required for CSM certification.
