financial management

Give An Account

Last week in this spot you saw photos of a mud-fight. This week you are looking at a photo of a Finance Team meeting in progress and though you might not think the two have much in common, they do.

I am guessing you don’t think about the Finance Team and what they do very often, but if it were not for the diligence of this team, it is unlikely that last week’s mud-fight would have happened. How cool is our Finance Team that they would help us steward our finances in such a way that this crazy, messy, hilarious event could happen? How great is it that they love our community enough to make sure there are funds in a Student Budget so that Jesus loving leaders can plan great events to disciple students?

Without a faith-filled Finance Team and their best efforts, we would have a tough time keeping our SunRidge vision and priorities alive.

This team meets and does their best to give an account to the Leadership Team and to our church of where things are at. They report and advise on adjustments when they see shortfalls (or windfalls!). They make sure we are practicing healthy stewardship and generosity. It isn’t just a straight forward role to serve in because there is both practical management of what we currently have and a faith that GOD will do more than we ask or think….or have.

If you haven’t prayed for this team before, take a moment to do so. Come to GOD with thanksgiving for the dedication of this crew and for the way they serve us. Pray they would have sharp eyes, honest pens, good ideas, joy in the assignment and most of all, ears that hear Jesus about what is ultimately His.
