The most important financial report your church needs each month.

Church board members are charged with fiscal oversight of the church coffers. But not every board member or finance committee member is a CPA and schooled in finance. Many treasurers and bookkeepers make the mistake of providing too much information and detail to board members. This only muddies the waters and leaves your committee members feeling less equipped to make good decisions. In order to get an accurate picture of the church's financial standing and make good decisions based on this information, your church board and finance committee need the right information presented in the right way.

The single-most important report you can bring into a finance meeting is the cash availability report.
