Twenty-eight people from twelve central Arkansas congregations and two day schools gathered yesterday at St. Peter’s in Conway for a business administration workshop led by Mary Jane Hodges, diocesan financial coordinator. Participants included treasurers, finance committee members, parish administrators, bookkeepers, wardens, and clergy.
The workshop focused on best practices of business methods in the church. Topics ranged from internal controls and fund accounting to employment practices and liability insurance. The interactive format encouraged an open exchange of ideas among participants.
Assisting her in the four-hour session were Randall Curtis and Lou Stinnett from the diocesan staff.
