We've Been Embezzled!

OVERVIEW
Embezzlement not only robs a church of money; it also damages its reputation, calling the ministry's integrity into question by the public. A church's own congregation might even disagree on the response to embezzlement—grace versus punishment. This is why one of the biggest challenges of embezzlement in a church setting is determining how to respond when theft is discovered. This download will help you through that process.
