Book Summary of Budgeting for a Healthy Church by Jamie Dunlop


Why does your church budget matter? How can it be evaluated and how do we know if it is working? 

The goal for church budgets, as with every other area of the church, is to glorify God by being faithful to what He has revealed in His Word. God desires churches to be faithful to the Great Commission, and this is the rubric for evaluating a church budget. 

Faithfulness will help a church think through the staff they hire, how church operations function, what ministries you support, and how you invest in your building. 

This way of thinking greatly supports pastors and church members. For pastors, the budget becomes a pastoral teaching tool and not just a financial one. Church members are helped because they understand the lens through which their pastors have formed the budget they present to the congregation.

The purpose of the church budget is to glorify God as we mirror His character and proclaim the gospel He has given to us.
