Excerpt from PCA Foundation Interview with Gordon Moore:
Gordon Moore knows church finances. He’s a Certified Financial Planner and has been the Business Administrator of Perimeter Church, just outside Atlanta, for over thirty years. Gordon was the Business Manager for the Presbyterian Church in America’s Administration Committee, starting in 1978, and helped formed what is now the PCA Retirement and Benefits, Inc.
In 1985, he went on staff at Perimeter Church, at that time a smaller version of what became one of the largest churches in the denomination. “The size has changed, but my role and our mission has remained the same,” Gordon said.
Gordon said he had learned a lot serving under Senior Pastor Randy Pope. Given his years of service, he’s seen many changes throughout the PCA and Perimeter. We sat down with him and asked what wisdom he could pass along to churches and church leaders from his experience.
The following are three tips on money and leadership for pastors to build a healthy, holistic work-life balance:
1. Be financially wise.
2. Cherish your wife.
3. Build a team.
