Churches & Money

While on our post-Christmas trip this week I had opportunity to speak with the pastor of a church that has a million dollars in the bank and receives $14k a month in oil, gas & coal revenues. They’re surrounded by available land and the pastor has a vision for expanding so they can reach the community better.

But many of the members want nothing to do with it. They want to keep the money in the bank – “for a rainy day.”

I’d rather have my congregation that is in debt, struggling with money than one that has too much. On the surface, it would appear that the church has no money problems. But it does. The security of money has blinded them to the mission God has given them and to the opportunities before them.
