Looking for an easy way to sabotage your new church plant? Let your guard down and play loose with the church’s finances and/or yours.
- Not carrying liability insurance
- Counting money by yourself – and taking it home
- Not tithing yourself
- Writing a check on next week’s offering
- Failure to control your budget
Satan does some of his best work through money. Put systems and processes in place so that you & your plant are not his next victim. It takes three things to make a fire: fuel, oxygen & a spark (heat/energy). Remove any one of them and you can’t get burned. It takes three things to set up a financial failure: access, opportunity & motive (pressure/rationalization). Create systems that prevent that ‘perfect storm’ from coming together and you will guard your life and your ministry.
Anybody have creative ways to get this done?
