The Bible says “do everything decently and in order” Jesus said “Render unto Ceaser the things that are Ceasers . . ., the Bible also says “Who sits down to build a building and does not count the cost?”
Our church has a million dollar + budget and a system that works with over a thousand people per week. It takes much background work to move that “machine”. We want to be above board but mostly we want to do “everything as unto the Lord.”
We are a 501C3 Incorporated church and in NC we are required to hold periodic business meetings.
