LCA Ministry Support
Finance & Administration is a department of the Executive Office of the Church, also known as Ministry Support. It is one of five departments exercising the 'enabling' functions outlined in our LCA Strategic Direction 2015–2018. Working with us are:
Together we provide the support services for our Australian and New Zealand agencies and congregations that enable them to focus on their mission and ministry activities (the 'go' and 'grow' priorities in our LCA Strategic Direction).
Finance & Administration
Finance and administration is one of those behind-the-scenes support functions that is needed in all areas of our church. Many congregations have competent members who navigate the changing world of accounting practice, payroll and taxation, information technology and data management. Many, however, do not have people with this sort of expertise among them. The LCA Finance & Administration team is here to help you in all these areas. We want to lighten the load on congregations so that you do not have to do everything by yourself, or know every new piece of compliance or legislation.
Our Finance & Administration Department supports and protects our church's work through caring for our people, sound accounting practices, management of risk, resources and property and IT development.
