Do you feel like you know how to prepare a sermon
but you’re always winging it with your money?


Because most church planters do.

It’s not that you’re unwilling. You’d do anything to tell His story to see lives transformed.

It’s just that God’s called you to share the gospel — not to be an accountant.

And your launch team? They might not be equipped to handle the hours of detailed work a non-profit needs from bookkeepers.

But lenders and high-capacity donors will always look at your finances with a critical eye. Everything you’re building could depend on having your i’s dotted and t’s crossed.

Don’t leave some of your ministry’s most critical moments to chance.

Get a team of kingdom-minded pros who will help you tell His story with your money.
