Check requisitions should be completed by or under the direction of the ministry leader. Completed check requisitions should be submitted to the Pastor for approval by the ministry leader at least one (1) week in advance of the date the check is needed. In limited cases, checks can be issued the same day. However, it should not be assumed that a check request can or will be completed the same day it is received.
If a cash advance is being requested for a special program, a detailed estimate of the expenses should be submitted with the initial request. A fully itemized report of actual expenses, copies of all receipts and any surplus funds are to be turned into the Finance Committee no later than two (2) weeks following the special program.
All expenditures of more than $2,500.00 require approval by the General Board. Please allow sufficient time for review by the Finance Committee and presentation of the request to the General Board.
