Fraud in the Church: What We Learned from 700 Church Leaders

Discover the results of our 2021 church fraud survey and the best practices for reducing vulnerabilities.

A new nationwide survey of more than 700 church leaders conducted by Church Law & Tax shows nearly one-third serve in congregations that have suffered from some form of financial misconduct. Churches of all sizes, ages, and locations are susceptible, according to the survey’s findings—and fraud prevention experts say the vulnerabilities that perpetrators commonly exploit are ones easily remedied. The survey also revealed surprising patterns regarding the types of people who are most prone to steal from their churches.

CPA Vonna Laue and attorney and Church Law & Tax content editor Matthew Branaugh co-led the research project. In this free, one-hour webinar, Laue and Branaugh sit down to discuss:

  • the purpose of the survey,
  • the results that stood out most,
  • and the best practices leaders can implement now to reduce their church’s vulnerabilities.
