Narrative Budgeting


How do our budgets become missional documents?  How do they show how we have been called to live out God's promise and call?  


Narrative Mission Budgets help tell the missional story of the congregation, helping to educate how money and giving supports the ministry of the church. 


Click below for a tutorial on constructing a Narrative Mission Budget (as a PDF and a Powerpoint presentation), as well as a sample budget (again, in both PDF and Powerpoint).  In addition there are also a set of questions called "A Summary Look at Church Finances" to help in your budget planning.
