I’ve blogged in the past about the tension that can develop between people who hold differing views about how to manage ministry finances. The topic can spark passionate discussion. It can also spark thoughtful guidance from ministry leaders like Henry Morris III, chief executive officer with the Institute for Creation Research.
I stopped by the ICR website the other day and ran across a piece Morris wrote titled “Ministry Money.” He says that “the principles of money management routinely place ministry leaders in certain tensions regarding wise stewardship. Some insist on debt-free ministry operations. Others see prudent financing for capital projects as wise financial leveraging.” He goes on to offer some “biblical admonitions to help us all make wise financial decisions.”
