“I have had the privilege of serving on the Board of the MAUMF for over 12 years, chairing the Board for all but 2 of those years. I am very proud of the work this organization has done and continues to do in preserving and growing funds of the local churches that they have and will continue to use for vital ministry programs and in our helping to educate pastors and lay leaders on best practices in stewardship and generosity. I am also honored to have been associated with the outstanding Christian men and women who have and are serving on the Board and staff of the MAUMF. These associations have helped me to grow in my own Christian faith. Serving has truly been a rewarding experience, both in seeing the results of what we do and how it has affected me personally.”
Tom Black, President
We are asked in our churches to contribute our time, our talents and our treasurer. Over the years I have been blessed with certain talents in the financial industry as a CPA. These came as a practitioner and as the leader of a large CPA firm. My career has led me down many paths that have allowed me to build a repertoire of experiences that have given me tools to help others when it comes to financial and management issues. I have used these skills to help organizations and individuals. Volunteering has been a large part of my life. I am so blessed and I am happy to give back when I can.
We do not all have the same talents. God asks us to share what we have with others. It turns out that the giving is very rewarding! As individual churches, we tend to look within our congregations for expertise in teaching, preaching, trusteeship, building, etc. But we don’t always have the right talent to meet the task.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. You don’t need to go it alone. MAUMF is here to help you in any way we can. We have an amazing group of clergy, financial professionals and investment professionals who are very willing and able to help your church to make the best investment decisions and we can provide the necessary resources for your church to be successful financially. We all have different viewpoints and we bring them to the table to come to solid decisions.
We spend a very large amount of time looking over the investment spectrum and overseeing the investment that you have entrusted to our care. Your stewardship is our stewardship!
Thank you for your trust and your prayers. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your church.
