The Equipment Loan Application & Policy below is free for your church office...
The Church Loan Application can be used when an organization or church member is asking to use or borrow the church equipment.
Many churches will have the requester fill out the church equipment loan form before loaning out
any church equipment. The form will then be turned into the church
administration office for approval or authorization before any equipment is loaned out.
After the church administrative office approves or disapproves of the equipment
loan, the person(s) will be contacted via phone, email or mail with the
church administrative office's decision.
This is a great way to organize the tracking of your church equipment at all times and helps eliminate any confusion on where your church equipment is at all times.
Here is a church equipment scenario: Opening the microphone case, I was shocked when I noticed the a microphone was missing. I checked and looked for the microphone in other boxes, in sound room, in the microphone stands, and that is when I remembered the Women's Retreat. The women's group had held a retreat over the weekend and even though the retreat was from Friday night to Saturday night, they had not returned the equipment yet.
You must create a Church Equipment Loan policy also to ensure the scenario like the one above does not happen in your church. Create a simple Equipment Loan policy by:
Establishing Guidelines - The borrower must notify you within at least one week advance before scheduling the event in which they will need the equipment, and fill out the Use of Equipment form in advance for approval. Borrower must be trained by designated person in the church in simple equipment usage before using equipment (wrapping cable wire, microphone care, electrical safety, etc.).
Establishing Expectations - The borrower will properly care for all the equipment, return equipment in timely fashion so not to cause problems with other equipment needs, will report any problems upon returning equipment, and will contact church if any critical problems occur while setting up equipment, etc.
Establishing Ownership - The borrower recognizes the equipment is on loan from the church, and recognizes repeated use of equipment on a regular basis may constitute the need for the ministry to purchase their own equipment.
If your church does loan out their equipment for any reason you will probably need the Equipment Loan Application or policy below...

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.
I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S.
