Should a church have a savings account? Should it have a large one? How much is enough? How much is too much? Or should all of the tithes after paying the pastor and maintaining the building be sent to missions? If a church collects a lot more than needed for salary and maintenance, is that a sign that they could support a church plant? I have a lot of questions about this, but they all basically boil down to should a church really have a savings account? Please suggest other scenarios/options than the ones I listed if you have an opinion on what the church should do with surplus tithes.
