After serving in ministry for several years in a supportive role as a youth pastor, I stepped into the lead pastor role and soon discovered that I didn’t know what I was doing when it came to a whole church budgetI searched and searched the internet for information about how to create a budget and be wise about making decisions. To be honest, there are only a few resources out there that give good points.

Simplify Church has created a platform where pastors can learn how to think through a budget, especially when they have a budget that they inherited. This platform does an exceptional job of explaining common myths and how to approach spending and budgeting. This is a great resource to create your first budget or revamp an existing one!

Financial Management 101

Which financial numbers you should be tracking each month and how to use them to make better financial decisions

Hey! I'm Josh.

We understand the challenges of church budgeting

In 2006, I launched Simplify Church with the goal of providing pastors and church leaders with financial solutions to simplify church growth.

Our sweet spot is helping small-to-medium size churches with their financial needs. Through our done-for-you church bookkeeping and payroll services, we’ve walked with hundreds of churches through the challenges that come with growing and getting financially healthy. We’ve seen too many churches struggle to grow because they didn’t have solid financial data to help them make better decisions.

We believe that when churches have the right systems and tools, they can spend less time worrying about finances, and more time making an impact and changing lives.
