Record Keeping Reminder

It never ceases to amaze me how as church leaders we have a tendency to keep closets full of old church items but fail to maintain critical legal and business records. On several occasions, I found my self asking a church client if they have a certain record only to discover it has either been thrown out, lost or destroyed. May I suggest the following: if you have not done it already, open a file cabinet drawer to begin maintaining these important church documents:

  • Interview notes of prospective employees
  • Employee records
  • IRS records
  • Insurance records, including policies and declaration pages
  • Minutes of Board of Directors/Deacon Meetings
  • File of each weekly church bulletin.
  • Committee Meetings
  • Record of your member’s names and addresses
  • Annual Accounting or Financial Records
  • Articles of Incorporation/Constitution/Bylaws and all Amendments
  • Names and Addresses of all Directors and Officers
Certification Badges National Association of Parliamentarians
