Bookkeeping Simplified. Expert Bookkeepers For Your Church.

Where Are You Coming Up Short?

Need a church bookkeeper?

But you can’t find someone with the knowledge you need. Or they want more hours than you can afford to pay them.

Can’t find an accounting report on Budget vs. Actual?

Because you don’t spend your days in accounting software, when you do need a report, it takes forever. If only you could find those notes from the last time.

Concerned about tax laws or regulatory compliance?

Laws change. The Church has its own set of exemptions and allocations. Are you staying on top of those?

Church bookkeeping doesn’t have to be overwhelming.

Emerging churches of ALL sizes often struggle with the cumbersome duties associated with church bookkeeping and payroll. BELAY’S team of rock star bookkeepers performs bank reconciliation, takes care of accounts payable, produces financial statements, and handles other functions for your church's financial operations all in an effort to reduce the possibility for fraud or mishandling of funds and bring you peace of mind.

BELAY Virtual Bookkeeping Services Are Here to Help:

We eliminate the risk of inconsistencies in record-keeping. When you hire us, you immediately create third-party accountability coupled with our best practices. Oh yeah, one more thing – our ministry-minded team knows church finance inside and out.

BELAY offers objective perspectives that produce insights which are vital for a church to reach its potential. We assign a team to your church, not just one person, which costs you less than hiring a part-time bookkeeper on staff. Imagine reducing your staff costs and not needing to lead/develop another staff member. Imagine having more time to do the work God called you to do.

Pastors, It’s Time To Own Your Schedule

As a pastor, you need a team; you need the cavalry. But let’s face it: Hiring is complicated. The right person for your church doesn’t seem to exist, leaving you with feelings of chaos, uncertainty, and the inescapable overwhelm of doing everything yourself. You should spend more time growing your church, not managing the minutia that’s best left to someone else.

A BELAY bookkeeper is the cost of your sanity, your peace of mind and your most precious resource: time.

But you don’t have to take our word for it. Take it from Pastor Matt Lacey from Fountain Church in California, who is just a little excited about (re-)gaining control of his schedule and ‘getting his Mondays back.’

Our Bookkeeping Plans are priced as a monthly flat fee. Starting at $450 a month, every plan includes:

  • Accounts Payable
  • Reconcile Credit Card Transactions
  • Reconcile Bank Accounts
  • Create and Provide Financial Reports
  • Provide Best Practices Advice
  • Meeting with Your Designated Bookkeeper

*Donor management is excluded.
