Financial Training

As we partner together in ministry, we are very excited to offer Financial and Real Estate Training as another tool and resource to Covenant churches continuing to make a difference in their local community and conference.

These financial training seminars designed for church pastors, treasurers, church leadership and staff to ensure they have the tools available to manage healthy and missional churches, to provide good financial reporting and to effectively understand and communicate the financial budget to stakeholders.
