100 percent of the money you give today goes to the ministry, outreach, and growth of Northside
As a new church plant, the Episcopal Diocese of Texas contributes a generous part of Northside’s operating expenses. At this time, the diocese pays for our priest’s salary, housing allowance, pension and healthcare. The contributions of church members and supporters support all additional ministry expenses. The hope for Diocesan church plants is that as our congregation grows, we will rely less upon Diocesan contributions over time.
Our 2022 balanced budget includes $198,000 for expected income and the same for spending. 100% of the core leadership team gives financially to the church.
Members of Northside’s Bishop’s Committee (lay leaders appointed by Texas Bishop Andy Doyle) are responsible for the congregation’s fundraising efforts and stewardship of finances, like approving ministry team leaders’ estimated expenses.
Northside clergy and lay leaders work diligently to ensure that we are good stewards. Documentation for all expenses are reported to the Diocesan Finance Office for multiple layers of approval and accounting.
