November 2009 Letter from the Editor
By: Jill Pinheiro

Are you looking for resources to help with your church budget, fundraising, and general finance considerations? Look to the Web, and within the pages of this magazine, for guidance on money issues affecting the church.

For example, the National Association of Church Business Administrators will host a seminar entitled "Essential Church Finance" on November 12 as part of its TeleWeb Series, which is an easy, affordable, and convenient way for church leaders to gain education without leaving your office.

According to the NACBA, the seminar will "discuss financial performance measurements as compared to ourselves and how we can compare to other churches."

Topics include:

* Inward comparisons trends within our church

* Balance sheet ratios such as debt comparisons

* Expense ratios should salaries be this much of the budget?

Visit www.nacba.net for more information or to register for the seminar.

In our annual focus on Church Finance, we identify 10 tips for soliciting gifts for your congregation, with helpful information to embark on a major campaign when your church needs significant financial support.

I'm always interested in hearing from you. You can reach me at jill@rpnmag.com.

God Bless,

Jill Pinheiro
