As I’ve been connecting with churches across the country in recent months, one common theme I’m encountering is the number of churches who are facing financial challenges. It looks different from church to church. Some have experienced a downturn in giving. Some are trying to develop strategies to refocus ministry dollars. Others are trying to identify systems and strategies to better steward the resources God has provided.
That’s part of why I’m so excited about my new site partner. They offer solutions to assist churches with those financial challenges and more. Let me introduce you.
TONY: Who are you?
CASEY: My name is Casey Graham, one of the founders of The Change Group. We founded our organization out of our passion to see church leaders win people to Jesus, not stress over money! I was on staff at Mountain Lake Church in Atlanta as we grew from 2 to over 2000 people.
TONY: I’m a big fan of Mountain Lake. I’ll be there for the ChurchPlanters.com conference in February. But, tell us about the Change Group.
CASEY: Our team is built around people with business brains and ministry hearts. We believe that ministry leaders, pastors, and church planters are called to do everything they can to reach people for Jesus; NOT WORRY ABOUT CHURCH FINANCES! Our team has created a web-based system that allows churches to outsource all of their bookkeeping and strategic financial staff positions to us for less than it costs to hire a part-time bookkeeper.
TONY: Love how you’ve created a way for churches to track finances and save money at the same time. Tell us about the solution you offer.
CASEY: The solution came about by starting to ask these questions: What if a church had…
- Quarterly CFO consulting focused on increasing giving in their church? -Monthly Financial Dashboards that are easy to understand and all they have to do is press print?
- Weekly team of experts focused on all aspects of church bookkeeping?
- We have essentially created the total solution for church finances. We do the big-picture thinking while handling all the critical details.
TONY: Have other churches started using this new solution already?
CASEY: Yes, we have a lot of churches already using this system. Check out all the stories of people on our new site. We are working with Shaun King, Tim Stevens, Scott Hodge, Michael Lukaszewski and many others.
