November Administration Workshop Highlights
At November’s BHC Administration Workshop in Salinas, CCBA’s Sharon Gallimore and Grace Tong challenged churches to manage their financial resources in a way that maximizes their capacity to sustain thriving ministries over the long haul. Guest speaker Robby Valderrama of Christian Wealth Management addressed the subjects of budgeting, borrowing, and cash reserves. Pastor Ken Reese, who attended the workshop, expressed the most salient points of the seminar from his perspective, ?how important it is to practice ?best practices?rather than just keep on doing things the way we’ve always done them?and the importance of churches putting ?processes in place before the problems occur.? Pastor Mike Solorio, who also attended, summed up his appreciation stating, ?Church finances should matter because it matters to God.?
