Church is not a business, and yet we are called to build the kingdom using all our abilities. People in leadership and administrative roles can seek to become better stewards by improving their business and management skills. 

VSB’s Center for Church Management enables current and future church leaders to steward the human, financial, and other resources of the church by teaching business best practices in a Christian context of mission and ministry. CCM offers the world’s first and only Master of Science in Church Management, as well as performing research and conducting non-credit programs in church management throughout the year.
