Up-coming Speaking Engagements featuring Bellwether CEO Lee Ann Crockett
Mark your calendars: we have exciting news! Bellwether Church Solution’s founder and CEO, Lee Ann Crockett, will be a featured speaker at the 2022 Texas Ministry Conference on February 17, 2022 in Houston, TX!
Lee Ann will be leading two different workshop sessions: When You Don’t Know Enough to Ask the Right Quesitons and It Can’t Happen Here: Why Your Church May Experience Embezzlement.
There are over 90 workshops to choose from related to nonprofit ministry, stewardship, finance, tax & legal, leadership & ministry development, personal & spiritual development and more.
In When You Don’t Know Enough to Ask the Right Questions Lee Ann will help the attendees understand what questions they need to ask to stay compliant with church staff compensation, expenses, and giving. Many non-profits do not know where to start when it comes to taxes, handling pastors’ expenses, handling donations, etc. While the IRS is friendly toward churches in general there are still many rules to follow and forms to fill out. Lee Ann will shed some light on these topics and more.
In the session It Can’t Happen Here Lee Ann will be drawing form real-life experience of church embezzlement to help equip organizations with the tools to detect and prevent fraud from happening behind their doors. Learn about common schemes used to embezzle, loopholes that allow the issue to continue, and how to mitigate these risks. It happens more often than people realize but thankfully there are ways to greatly reduce the risk of it occurring at your church.
If you live in Texas and are working at a non-profit, you won’t want to miss this event!
