We Stress "Preventive Management" In Your Ministry

Frieze Consulting is strongly committed to preventive management. The organizational structure and operational systems of the church should constantly be reviewed and updated for weaknesses, inefficiencies and noncompliance with governmental regulations. Under this form of management, leadership tries to prevent a risk or exposure from occurring instead of waiting for it to happen. Current cultural and legislative trends will continue to take their tolls on the church. Churches and their leadership must always strive to manage their affairs with prevention in mind!
