Here is one of the least favorite topics to discuss in a church setting. Relax, we aren’t going to tackle this topic like you might think either. We’ll leave that to your church leadership. What we do want to talk about this month is the offering. As I have had the opportunity to either do assessments with churches or to just observe how they are doing their offering, there are several processes that have come up in my observations that create a security issue for the church.
I have heard it said by people in church leadership positions, that if someone wanted to steal from the church, whether that is the offering, equipment, or anything for that matter, that they must have needed it worse than the church did. I haven’t found a single verse that would remotely support this way of thinking. Instead there are verses that support being good stewards of what we have been given. I understand that many churches take their offering differently so, this is not meant to be a comprehensive document on what to do in each situation. Primarily I will be addressing this subject from the standpoint that offering is collected in some manner and will touch on offering that is put into a box or similar device.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
