Congregational Policies

Why Create Policies?

A True Tale of Two Churches

First Christian Church developed a policy for managing and distributing legacy gifts. Later, their board learned they received a gift of over $2 million. In just 30 minutes, they created their action plan for managing and distributing funds. That gift continues to bless the congregation and its mission.

Central Christian Church, however, did not have a plan. They received $250,000, and their leaders managed the fund with no policy in place. The congregation soon became concerned about how the funds were being spent.
