Finance and Administration
"Taking the five loaves and two fish and looking up to heaven, Jesus gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples who gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve baskets and broken pieces that were left over. -- Matthew 14:19-20
The Office of Finance and Administration oversees the resources of the Baltimore-Washington Conference, which include an annual budget of more than $30 million. In a ministry of stewardship, members of the conference staff and Committee on Finance and Administration direct the conference's funds in a manner that enables the conference to call, equip, send and support discipling leaders.
One of the ways they do this is through the collection of apportionments, which churches contribute to enable the church to do ministry together that would be impossible alone.
