Aligning Finances with Biblical Priorities for Ministry
Budgeting for a Healthy Church
(Zondervan Academic, 2019)
WHO: Jamie Dunlop, associate pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church.
HE SAYS: “It is the joy of our stewardship that shows off how good and desirable God is, how good and desirable the work is he calls us to, and how good and desirable are his plans for us.”
THE BIG IDEA: This book helps church leaders determine the pastoral implications of what they choose to fund in their budget.
A quick read at nine chapters, this book explains that budgeting is pastoral work. The author shows how what the church gives its money to will have direct pastoral implications
Chapters tackle such subjects as leadership, staffing, missions, programs, operations, communications and income.
