The primary purpose of the Finance and Stewardship Group is to guide and support the congregation in its financial and stewardship responsibilities. This includes overseeing the church’s budget, managing its financial accounts, and ensuring transparency and accountability in all financial matters. Additionally, the group works to educate and encourage members to practice good stewardship by committing their time, talents, and resources to support the church’s mission and ministries.
The Finance and Stewardship Group typically comprises dedicated church members passionate about responsible financial management and a heart for stewardship. The group is led by a chairperson, who works closely with the church council, pastor, and treasurer to ensure smooth coordination of financial activities. The group may also include subcommittees or teams focused on specific aspects of finance and stewardship, such as budget planning, financial reporting, planned giving, and stewardship campaigns.
