Professional Development Opportunity for Staff in Church Business Administration

August 3, 2022

The Academy of Church Business Administration (ACBA) will return to Nashville, TN at the end of August 2022. This multi‐day, in‐person training event covers a variety of topics. Participants learn from experts in their fields and seasoned church administrators on subjects such as marketing your church, effective use of social media, Human Resources best practices, successful capital campaigns, and best practices in accounting and finance. WNC Treasurer Dr. Mark King will lead three days of the sessions on Stewardship, Facilities Management, Accounting Practices and Strategic Planning.

The ACBA has been hosted by the General Council on Finance and Administration at its Nashville location since 2016. For the 2022 event, the ACBA will take place at the new location of GCFA at 1908 Grand Ave., also the home of Discipleship Ministries, the Upper Room, and the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.   In partnership with The Church Network, the ACBA curriculum covers the two core modules of academic study for those seeking certification as a Certified Church Administrator. Not seeking certification? That’s okay, too! The ACBA curriculum is designed for anyone interested in gaining additional knowledge on these important topics. Executive pastors, church business administrators, local church pastors, district and regional level administrators – all have attended the ACBA in the past. Attendees can come for just one day or all nine as part of their professional development and continuing education.
