Transparency Leads to Greater Giving
This webinar took place on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 2:00-3:00PM ET. See below for the recording and PowerPoint slides.
Wondering why there are always money issues? Asking how to put life back into a congregation’s giving? How does a church achieve financial transparency without seeming like it is asking for money all the time? Transparency is subtle, but key. Anecdotally, transparency seems to lead to greater worship, program, and financial participation.
This webinar discussion will define transparency as it relates to churches, identify inhibitors to transparency, and enablers of transparency. This uplifting presentation is applicable to churches of all sizes and financial status.
This webinar will be presented by James B. Jordan, CPA, CFE, CGMA
