Finance & Administration


The purpose of the Stewardship Team is to promote the financial needs and administer the financial resources and properties of the annual conference to support the Kentucky Annual Conference in carrying out its primary task. The team provides resources in the area of stewardship development and planned giving to assist congregations in nurturing disciples in the stewardship way of life. The Stewardship Team works cooperatively with the Connectional Ministries Team to interpret to local congregations the impact of our connectional giving.

The purpose of the Council on Finance and Administration (CFA) is to develop, maintain, and administer a comprehensive and coordinated plan of fiscal and administrative policies, procedures, and management services for the annual conference.
