    Financial Audits

    The Book of Discipline defines a local church audit as an independent evaluation of the financial reports and records of the internal controls of the local church by a qualified person or persons for the purpose of reasonably verifying the reliability of financial reporting, determining whether assets are being safeguarded and determining compliance with the law, local church policies and the Book of Discipline

    The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCF&A) has created a reference guide answering questions about the audit process. This resource will answer many of your questions including how an audit should be conducted and who should conduct the audit.

    Local church audits are mandatory according to the Book of Discipline and must be done annually. The completed audit should be sent to your District Office as part of your Charge Conference Reporting. Click here to access the forms.
