Over the years as I have been involved in Christian ministry at a number of levels, one thing has become abundantly clear ... vision cannot become reality without adequate funding !
Churches need help at various levels. Some churches are planning ministry and facility expansion and need to maximize their givings over the short-term to accomplish that. Some are struggling to meet present operating budgets. Still others are struggling with financial management and basic tools to do sound analysis as a basis to developing proactive programs to maximize financial potential.
At Harder & Associates we have taken those areas of need seriously and have developed innovative resources to assist you. We have developed seminars as professional training tools for your church finance leaders. These are offered regionally, but are also available as local church training events. We have developed resources in print, and on video through our "Church and Finance Seminar series". We offer consultative services for budget and capital programs and feasibility studies for church development projects. We offer financial assessments and help at developing proactive stewardship programs that get results.
Many para-church ministries are also struggling financially. Meeting the annual budget is a daunting challenge for all, but the challenge becomes even greater when ministries are faced with capital needs. Harder and Associates offers help at two levels: financial feasibility studies to establish the financial potential for a capital project and directed capital campaigns to raise the necessary funds.
In short we take your financial needs seriously! I invite you to peruse the products and services we offer and then contact me. I'll be happy to explain to you further how you can benefit from our services.
