Academy for Church Finance starts in October 2017

Consisting of four sessions taken over two years in two locations, the Academy for Church Finance seeks to enhance the understanding and skills of laity for financial leadership in the local church so that laity and clergy work in partnership to grow healthy congregations. Up to 20 clergy-lay teams from each of our three member conferences (Eastern PA, Peninsula-Delaware and Baltimore-Washington) may register for each location. Learn more…
