2013 Financial Forum for Ministries

2013 Financial Forum for Ministries

Addressing legislative, tax, economic, and cultural changes that affect ministries.

Stewardship of ministry finances is a sacred trust. Those who carry this responsibility at Christian churches, schools, mission sending agencies, and other ministries need to stay informed about key changes that impact their ministries. But how? One way is by attending the 2013 Financial Forum for Ministries, co-presented by CapinCrouse LLP and Evangelical Christian Credit Union (ECCU).

This annual event, offered in five locations this year, will address important issues,

including the legislative, tax, economic, and cultural changes that affect ministries.

Forums will be held in these cities in November and December:

November 5 at Liberty Station Conference Center in San Diego, California

November 6 at Church of the Chimes in San Jose, California

November 6 at Lindner Conference Center in Lombard, Illinois

November 7 at ECCU in Brea, California

December 3 at Every Home for Christ in Colorado Springs, Colorado

These events attract hundreds of ministry leaders by bringing together industry experts like Dan Busby,1 president of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability. With the tax, finance, and legal landscape for churches and ministries changing like never before, Busby will provide updates on some of the most recent need-to-know developments. He'll address tax reform, healthcare, challenges with the clergy housing allowance, efforts to eliminate or minimize the charitable tax deduction, and other regulatory issues on Capitol Hill.

Several new presenters join the faculty for this year's forums, including nationally awarded journalist John Dickerson, author of the book, The Great Evangelical Recession. Economists Roger Conover and Stuart Strother will also bring a 2014 economic forecast and talk about what ministries can expect.

The cost is $59 for the first person and $39 for each guest from the same organization.

ECCU members and CapinCrouse clients can attend for FREE. For more information
