When’s the last time a college student was involved in a budget meeting for your ministry?

That’s this week’s Fridea, not coincidentally because it happens to be Budget Meeting Week here too.

Whether you even have a formal “budget meeting” or not, including students in on the financial aspects of your ministry – from budgeting to expense accounting to fundraising – could be a great part of shepherding. For both students who are finance-minded and students who seem headed toward “vocational ministry,” seeing this aspect of what you do is a win.

So let them in!
