Financial results for the 2011 calendar year have arrived and we can report that the church company has made a surplus of $500,000 after three years of accumulated losses totalling $1.4 million. Under God’s blessing in 2011 we reported a surplus of $200k before interest and a surplus of $500,000 after interest earnings. Our goal is to fully recover our pre-global financial crisis reserve position by 2015, which means more resources available for Gospel workers, evangelism and new church plants.

Tithe from church members increased by 4.5 per cent in 2011. Whilst this sort of increase does enable us to maintain our existing workforce it does nothing to provide resources for new church plants and aggressive church growth strategies, which we desperately need if we are going to break the cycle of stalled church membership growth in our conference. Overall, however, we can acknowledge Gods leading in our 2011 financial results and I pray that we will remain united in our desire to see the lost saved for the Kingdom.

CFO School Report - March 2012

We can report that the schools company has made a surplus of $2.2 million in 2011, which is an improvement on the $1.9 million surplus that was generated in 2010. The $2.2 million surplus represents a 3.9 per cent return on our turnover and we are continuing to move towards our goal of a five (5) per cent return on our turnover in the next few years. Under God’s blessing, we have recorded an increase in our enrolment base over the year end by 124 students to bring our opening enrolments in 2012 to 3626 students.

We have 10 schools in our company and two long day care centres. The three large schools in our system have contributed 92 per cent of our company surplus in 2011 and hold 71 per cent of our system student enrolments. The mid and smaller schools experienced inconsistent financial performance in 2011 due to their smaller size and lack of economies of scale. Overall, however, we can acknowledge God's leading in the improvements in our financial results over the previous year, and thank God for the changed lives of students as they are impacted positively by the Christian example of our teachers and support staff.

In 2011, the North New South Wales Conference's Evangelism Department commissioned "Go Forward," a DVD sharing the story of Toronto Seventh-day Adventist Church's experience in Natural Church Development (NCD) that has brought about a powerful transformation and active engagement in the mission of the Adventist Church.
