Most pastors and planters are trained theologically. We spend years learning how to exegete scripture, dissect culture, preach, teach, and counsel but we spend little to no time dealing with one of the most critical issues of church leadership, funding. While most of us didn't get into this because we have a love for reading P&L's, writing grants, building budgets, or asking for funds what we find is you can't have or build a church without attending to the finances of the mission. This section is designed to give you a working knowledge of fundraising, budgeting, and donor management. This section is a good start to learning the financial side of ministry, but it is just that, a good start. Begin praying for the leaders God will raise up to help you faithful manage the finances of the church plant.
