PRESENTERS: Ken Sloane, Joe Park, Norma Quinn
If you are experiencing any of the following frustrations, it may be time to change your church’s fiscal year:
- Does your ministry year run August-July and your budget year run January-December?
- Are you weary of holding your breath to see if December giving will leave the church in the black?
- Is budgeting for a new year, while trying to close the books on your current year, stealing the joy of celebrating Advent?
If you said yes to one or more of these questions, join Ken Sloane as he welcome Horizons Stewardship CEO and Managing Partner Joe Park and former Oklahoma Annual Conference Treasurer and current Vice President at Horizons Stewardship Dr. Norma Quinn as they explain the benefits and offer cautions in an intriguing discussion on why so many churches are changing their fiscal year away from January-December. Participants will be able to download this free resource, “A Guide to Changing Your Fiscal Year in the United Methodist Church.”
Ken Sloane is the Director of Stewardship & Generosity for Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church.
