Local Church Finance Resources

"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." ~ Corinthians 9:7 (NIV)

In a recent gathering at First United Methodist Church in Princeton, WV, pastors, local church treasurers, and individuals passionate about finance congregated to engage in a dynamic dialogue with our Conference Treasurer, Jamion Wolford. The meeting served as an important platform for the exchange of valuable insights and strategies pertaining to financial stewardship within the church community. During this enlightening session, critical resources, including best practices, and tips on fostering financial transparency, were shared and discussed. With a shared commitment to fortifying the financial foundation of the church, this gathering marked a significant step towards ensuring the continued growth and prosperity of local United Methodist Churches and the ministries represented.
