Managing Ethics in the Church

Tonight I’m teaching the Hoptown Cohort 6 about business ethics programs… development, implementation and auditing. And I’d like to bring my blog readers into the conversation.

Using the local church as the case study…

1. How should churches maintain ethical behavior related to money… fund raising, recording and spending?

2. How should churches maintain ethical relationships among the elders, deacons and other leaders or staff?

3. How should churches maintain ethical measurement of goals and missional trajectory? This one is tricky… What I’m asking is for discussion related to the missional use of resources and people in the church. How do we know what we are doing is effective toward our missional goals?

I’m interested in reading your thoughts.
