This week I have had two completely different conversations about the same issue.
I spoke with two ministers from two different churches in the same area and both told me that because their churchwarden moved out of the suburb they had no one with the capacity to serve as church treasurer.

The other pastor said it was his responsibility to raise up someone to train to be treasurer.
Both the comments have some truth, but are not the whole story.
