Cost Consciousness I. Hire an experienced bookkeeper. Live on 80-90% of income. Use a purchase order system. Get bids on anything over $100. Know the cost per mile of an added bus. Maintenance, fuel, tires. School tuition based on your expenses not other Christian schools.
Cost Consciousness II. The Christian school should pay a % of costs (Utilities, Insurance, and Mortgage) to the church. Encourage members to give extra to debt retirement. This will shorten and save on the principle and interest. Schedule a Stewardship Month to show progress.
