Church Library Ministry Administration




  • INTERVIEW a member of the budget/financial committee and/or the minister overseeing the library ministry. Discuss the budget needs, how the library will support the overall ministry of the church, and the annual church budgeting process. 


  • DEVELOP, with your team, goals and actions for the next year. With those plans, craft a line item budget using the budget planning worksheet (p. 42, Church Library Ministry Information Service) and your budget tracking record as a guide to fit with the church’s budgeting procedure.


  • IMPLEMENT your budget by presenting it to your church for approval according to your church’s budget procedures.


  • EVALUATE the budget after 2-3 months with your team and share any concerns you have regarding the budget with a representative of the finance committee. Please share your experience with the CLN.
