What is the function of the Board of Trustees?
The Board of Trustees controls and directs legal and financial affairs of the Church. The Board of Trustees has responsibility for property decisions, as well. As a practical matter, the Board of Trustees handles the accounting of offerings, the purchase and sale of property for the Church, the coordination of management of rentals owned by the church, and the retention of legal counsel for the Church. In short, the Board of Trustees is the governance arm of Church leadership, and provides oversight of any Church matters that have financial or legal implications. Some activities under Board direction are:
- Management of the portfolio of the investments of the Church
- Facilitation of purchase of properties under the vision of campus expansion
- Establishment of a limited liability corporation to oversee ASBC-owned properties
- Counting and depositing of all tithes and offerings for the Church
