Internal Controls – Action Steps to Excellence

Internal controls are the procedures and practices that help ministries achieve their mission.  They promote efficiency, reduce the risk of loss, help ensure financial reports re accurate, and assist is maintaining compliance with laws and regulations.  Sound internal controls also help ministries avoid patterns of mismanagement that could bring dishonor to God.
