In preparing your Youth Ministry Budget Worksheet, you need to do some of the following things to make sure you have a list of values. This is where to begin.
First things first, what are you going to write? You have to identify what youth ministry is all about and what your goals are. Is it a religious organization? Is it a community-building project? Or maybe you want to help out a specific organization.
After you have this plan, how do you apply it to your needs? After you have this goal in mind, you must start making a list of values. Don’t worry about the spreadsheet, this is just a guideline, a resource.
When writing down your values, write them as a mission statement or an organization’s creed. Then simply list each of the values you have written in this format.
After you have a list of values, the next step is to create a dollar amount for each value. The dollar amount will be a lower limit, an upper limit, and it may not include other items that are not part of the faith value. However, it should include what you can afford to spend on each value.
As a youth ministry budget worksheet, you may want to add a space for spiritual strength and challenges, spiritual awareness, spiritual practice, and faith-building. Depending on your organization, these may not appear in your budget, but they are important.
A youth ministry budget worksheet can be a great tool to use in any church setting or even just a personal budget. If you think that this information will help you as a youth minister, it will help you as an individual with your financial situation.
