Event description

Description

Sponsored by the Treasurer and Council on Finance and Administration
of the Mississippi Conference of The United Methodist Church

This financial leadership training provides counsel and guidance to strengthen the administrative and financial abilities of the local church treasurer, financial secretary, finance committee members, church business administrators, and church Trustees.


Course Descriptions


A. Human Resources: This session will deal with the difference in employees and sub-contractors. The
tax handling aspects of each are quite different. There is also a major difference in lay and clergy
compensation. We will have hands on training in preparing 1099 forms, 941 forms, and W-2 forms.

B. Treasurer and Pastor Parish Issues: The 2019 Clergy Budget Compensation form and NON-Clergy
Compensation Form will be discussed. We will spend time talking about salary reductions for benefits
and housing. A full explanation of the Clergy Benefits invoice will be done. With the change in the tax
law, there will be explanations of the rules surrounding business reimbursement accounts and proper
handling of moving expenses.

C. Statistical Reporting: While this report is the senior pastor’s responsibility, the treasurer and financial
secretary among many others must assist the pastor in the proper preparation of the numbers for the
report. We will review the report and give helpful hints on the completion of the stat forms.

D. Connectional Giving: We will explore how the apportioned mission shares are determined for each
church. Then we will review the 2019 and 2020 mission share budget and give helpful hints on how to
increase your giving to your apportioned amounts.

E. Finance Committee: We will look at the responsibility of the committee in the Discipline. We will offer a
year round time table that should be very helpful in the task of leading finance in the local church. We
will look at the charge conference responsibilities of the Finance Committee.

F. Budget Preparation: Every Church should have a budget. That allows for good stewardship of the gifts
of the members while making sure all areas of ministry and operation of the local church is funded. We
will explore the various methods of budgeting and look at a time table to get the work done. We will
discuss a narrative budget and suggest easy ways to prepare it as well as ways to encourage stewardship
of it.

G. Financial Secretary: We will look at the duties of the financial secretary and give you helpful hints on
how to do this task. We will also review the legal requirement of the process.

H. Treasurer: We will review the responsibilities of the treasurer and the reporting process. We will have
helpful hints on reporting both for the budget and, financial statements.

I. Internal Controls: This session will review your Disciplinary requirement for internal controls. We will
look at the reasons for having them and how to develop a set of controls tailored to your church.

J. Auditing: The Discipline requires every church to have an annual audit. The conference requirements
changed in 2017 for the year 2018 and forward. We will explore the who, what, when, why, and where
of the process and help you make plans to get started in January.

K. Trustees: The Discipline has the responsibilities of the local church trustees detailed in a very good way.
We will spend time understanding the responsibilities of the legal body as well as the required work of
it. We will also look at incorporation of the trustees. Adequate insurance and risk management is a duty
of the trustees and we will spend time in reviewing those responsibilities. We will look at the charge
conference responsibilities of the Trustees.
