The first step in preparing for financial crisis is proper planning in the hopes of avoiding one. Congregants desire accountability structures to feel confident in their giving. When you increase trust in the system, you will increase the willingness of people to give in the process. Take some time to consider those structures you have in place for financial accountability in your church. Make revisions where necessary so that your people will see a greater seriousness towards the ministry's finances.
