About-

This book will help seminary students and ministers with no training in accounting to expand their core management competency and church leadership skills to include basic issues of finance and accounting. It will also provide pastors/ministers with financial management orientation to become better leaders/managers of their churches and organizations. Specifically, this book is designed to bring pastors, ministers, and seminary students up to speed in the language of accounting and money in contemporary American society. It gives them practical resources for effective (not hands-on) management of church finances. Among others, it will offer training on basic accounting and budgeting, reading of financial reports, and elementary tax and legal issues in order to develop pastors'/students' core competency in stewardship leadership. After going through this book, most students and pastors should be able to read, exegete, and make sense of the financial reports that will be given to them by church accountants (treasurers, finance committees). This book helps pastors to understand and interpret the accounting and monetary issues of their ministries in a professional and theologically sound way.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"As a seminary leader who received negligible training in accounting, this book is a valuable resource to me personally as I seek to engage in transformative leadership. I will assign this book in my courses for seminary students, recommend it to colleagues in pastoral ministry, and use it for my own continued leadership growth."
--Sarah B. Drummond, Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Andover Newton Theological School

"Accounting and Money for Ministerial Leadership is a truly original, valuable, even essential contribution. Thoughtful, learned, and practical, this introduction should be read not only by pastors, seminarians, treasurers, and church finance committees, but equally by CFOs, investment managers, bankers, and accountants. It is anchored in state-of-the-art accounting, in broad-ranging economic and theological perspectives, and in convincing biblical authority."
--David W. Gill, Director, Mockler Center for Faith and Ethics in the Workplace, Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary
