As a ministry grows, its budget becomes more complex. The process for building that budget must change to reflect the increased complexity. Presenters for the upcoming ECCU webinar Advanced Budgeting have proven track records building and managing budgets for larger ministries.
Under Billy Burnett’s leadership as executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO), Joni and Friends International Disability Center has been ranked in the top six percent of fiscally managed nonprofits in the country. His passion for fiscal responsibility is matched by his passion for ministry, which has taken him around the globe, including Ghana, West Africa, where he oversaw staffing of a center to restore wheelchairs to meet the mobility needs of families affected by disabilities.
Before becoming CFO at The Park Ministries in Charlotte, North Carolina, 10 years ago, Arthur Wilson worked 15 years with the Internal Revenue Service in the areas of employee plans, exempt organizations, and 501(c)(3) compliance. Besides managing a substantial budget at The Park today, he is passionate about helping the body of Christ destroy the demon of debt. Arthur travels across the country helping people eliminate debt and increase their lifestyle of giving. He also consults with smaller congregations regarding 501(c)(3) compliance..
And Mark Jones, a vice president and senior banking consultant with ECCU, has worked in banking for over 25 years and specializes in helping nonprofits manage their finances. He has taught and written extensively on nonprofit financial management and banking. Mark is a Certified Treasury Professional, Accredited ACH Professional, has served on the governing board of his church, and now works as their finance director.
