What are the duties of the church accountant?

What are the duties of the church CFO?

Most churches just have a Church Accountant, but some larger churches with might have a CFO (not very many). But if your church has a Church CFO, of course, they are over the Church Accountant.

The CFO is over all the financial division.

The duties of the Church Accountant is specific to your church policy and procedures, but I can give you some quick examples:

  • To provide financial services to church members and professional church staff.
  • To prepare quarterly giving statements.
  • To enter weekly contributions to general fund, building fund, special funds, and donor designated funds.
  • To prepare annual contribution letters to church members.
  • To keep confidential all financial contribution information.
  • To enter all invoices submitted for payment, cut checks, submit to treasurer for signature, and prepare for mailing.
  • To balance checking account and investment accounts and submit reconciliation to treasurer for
    signature.
  • To submit to the church treasurer and church administrator a listing of all checks written during the month.
  • To prepare monthly reports for the church board and individual ministry teams.
  • To process payroll .
  • To prepare monthly, quarterly and yearly payroll tax forms and make necessary deposits, and prepare W-2s at year-end.
  • Prepare a yearly budget draft for review and adoption by the church board.
  • To back up the computer system.
  • To prepare for and cooperate with those appointed to perform a yearly audit of financial records.
  • To prepare year-end financial reports for annual meeting.
  • To perform other necessary and related work as may be assigned.



God Bless You,
