Great speakers will join Fletch for the workshops:
William Vanderbloemen, Brad Leeper Dave Dummitt, Dan Busby and others from ECFA, Monty Kelso and Jon Wright

Everyone, and I mean literally everyone will learn new information communicated in such a refreshing format. David Fletcher has brought together his decades of church leadership into this. Smart Money for Church Salaries is a gift to the Church. This will change how you do church governance and compensation. I would highly recommend this to all senior church leadership. With this, ignorance is no excuse. Brilliant. Helpful. Blessing.

Sam Chand, Leadership Consultant and author of Bigger Faster Leadership

Unfortunately, most churches and church leaders have very little training or context to lean on when it comes to setting salaries. In Smart Money for Church Salaries, David Fletcher has done the body of Christ a big favor by producing a book that covers both the mythological and philosophical issues that every church with a paid staff must deal with. You may or may not agree with everything he suggests. That’s not the issue. Grappling with these real-life issues is the issue. I recommend it to you and your team.

Larry Osborne, Pastor and Author, Vista, California
