The Role of the Finance Council

The Parish Finance Council plays a crucial role in managing the financial aspects of our church. Comprised of dedicated volunteers with expertise in finance and accounting, the council assists in making informed decisions regarding financial planning, budgeting, and managing funds. Their role is to support the proper stewardship of resources, create financial transparency, and provide guidance on matters related to the church's financial well-being.

Guiding Financial Stewardship

One of the primary responsibilities of the Parish Finance Council is guiding the financial stewardship of Forward Church. They work closely with our clergy, staff, and community members to oversee the financial operations and ensure accountability, transparency, and integrity in all financial matters.

Effective Budgeting and Planning

The Finance Council diligently develops and reviews annual budgets to support the various ministries and programs offered by Forward Church. By analyzing the financial needs and priorities of the church, they help allocate resources efficiently while staying aligned with our mission. This ensures that our community receives the necessary support and care it deserves.

Financial Reporting and Analysis

With the responsibility of financial reporting and analysis, the Parish Finance Council provides regular updates on the financial health of Forward Church. They carefully monitor income, expenses, and investments, allowing us to make data-driven decisions for the benefit of our community. These insights enable us to be good stewards of our resources and responsibly plan for future growth.

Ensuring Compliance and Transparency

They work closely with external auditors to conduct periodic audits, ensuring accountability and transparency in all financial transactions. By adhering to best practices and maintaining transparency, Forward Church can build trust and confidence within the congregation and the wider community.

Their expertise and guidance greatly contribute to the success of these endeavors, enabling us to expand our mission and outreach in the community.

The Impact of the Parish Finance Council

The Parish Finance Council plays a vital role in the growth and sustainability of Forward Church. Without their dedication and expertise, we would not be able to effectively manage our financial resources and fulfill our mission of spreading God's love in Solon and beyond.
