Church leaders must work vigilantly to prevent the embezzlement of church funds, and sound internal controls are an ongoing—and critical—part of that prevention.

With Covid-19, churches now approach worship services, donations, and administrative tasks differently. In light of those changes, what internal controls need to be reviewed or changed?

Church Law & Tax Vice President and Publisher Rob Toal is joined by CPA and Church Law & Tax Senior Editorial Advisor Vonna Laue to directly address this question for church leaders.
