Trustee and Financial Ministry


About the Ministry

The Trustee Ministry manages the material possessions and oversees the financial matters of the church with spiritual sensitivity. The church's physical property, financial obligations and all other assets are the responsibility of the Trustee Ministry. Trustees enable the execution of God’s mission through stewardship and individual spiritual gifts. Acting as one body, the Trustees provide direction, leadership, facilities, processes, capability and capacity to help further God’s word.

The First Baptist Church of Cheswold Trustee Ministry is charged with stewardship of all the resources that God has blessed the FBCC Church Family with.

In fulfilling this solemn responsibility the Trustee Ministry follows a set of Guiding Principles. Some of those principles are listed below:

Spiritual Sensitivity: We have a love for the Lord and consequently the church body. We will be sensitive to its needs and will endeavor to administer our responsibilities in a manner that provides a robust and fruitful worship environment.

Teamwork: We team with our church family and others on the basis of trust, understanding, and love.

Accountability: We accept responsibility and are accountable to God and the congregation for the proper administration of our stewardship duties.

Communication: We will proactively communicate with the church body and others in a clear, open, and honest manner.

The Trustee Ministry is available to serve God's people. If you have comments, questions, or concerns please direct them to us at:  call the church at: 302-736-6443 and ask to speak to a Trustee.

                   11 King 22:4-7

Go up to Hilkiah, the high priest, that he may count the money brought into the house of the Lord which the doorkeepers have gathered from the people.  And let them deliver it into the hand of the workmen who are in the house of the Lord to repair the damages of the house, to the carpenters and the builders and masons and for buying timber and hewn stone to repair the house. Only no accounting shall be made with them of the money delivered into their hands, for they deal faithfully.
