Finance & Budget


The Diocesan Budget is funded from three major sources.  The first, and largest, is the Full Share assessments from the congregations.  The other sources are the proceeds of endowments & other funds of the Diocese and payments from people attending things like Conventions, Youth Events, Prepared to Serve classes and Clergy events.

The Diocesan Council begins putting the budget together in May for the following year.
