CFM began in 2008 out of a realized and apparent need for financial and administrative support in the local church. While engaging with pastors and church planters, our founder quickly realized that there was a gap and a need to assist churches in the financial and administrative areas of ministry. One of those gaps is not having a financial plan, another is not having a financial process, and a third is a lack of nonprofit accounting experience in the church. We discovered that these gaps in are real and serious to the health and function of the church. Most churches have some kind of financial or bookkeeping structure but that does not mean they have a thorough process or are following appropriate accounting practices.
We discovered that generally pastors are visionaries and work to raise up people and create a Gospel and community impact. Their gift sets and personalities usually lean towards teaching, shepherding, and leading people but not in finances and administration. CFM was birthed out of a desire to assist these types of pastors and churches.
Since our inception in 2010 as a nonprofit, we have been helping churches get financially on track, organizationally healthy, and have saved churches lots of time, money, and frustration. CFM has grown every year since its inception which is attributed to the need of such servicing and the abilities of our team.
The desire of this ministry is to help churches establish financial rhythms and honor our Lord Jesus Christ in doing so. At CFM our motto is, “we manage so you can minister.” Let us “manage” for your ministry!
