A free church finance workshop hosted by Bethlehem Baptist on January 7 proved a success. Twenty-one people from eleven NRBA and non-NRBA churches came to learn from Davis Blount, senior consultant, compensation and benefits, Baptist State Convention on North Carolina. Some of the topics covered during the 2.5-hour workshop included tax updates, compensation planning, employer provided benefits and managing designated funds. The gathering ended with a question and answer session.
A second free workshop at Bethlehem is planned for this fall. Blount's topic will be church budgeting. The hope is for Bethlehem to host a free church finance workshop every spring and fall.
