SamLyn Story

SamLyn Bookkeeping was founded with a vision to provide specialized financial management services to churches and faith-based organizations. With a background in bookkeeping and a heart for ministry, I saw a need for expert financial support tailored specifically to the unique needs of churches. My goal is to help churches maintain impeccable financial records, enabling them to focus more on their mission and less on their accounting.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Outsourcing Bookkeeping.

What are the benefits of outsourcing bookkeeping?

Bookkeeping processes can be the most challenging time of the week. Whether you are a bookkeeper, treasurer, volunteer or director of operations, managing the church finances can be challenging. Handling your own bookkeeping can quickly take over, letting other responsibilities take a backseat. Let SamLyn Bookkeeping help you get back on track, allowing you to do what you do best and keep your ministry thriving. Outsourcing bookkeeping helps to alleviate volunteers or the need to pay an employee to handle these responsibilities

Will there be a person available for questions?

Absolutely! We take pride in giving our clients value that exceeds our fees. We have one central bookkeeping email that all of the bookkeepers have access to. You will be assigned a bookkeeper, but if that person happens to be out for an extended period of time, there is a team that can step in. There is no interruption in your service. No need to wait for a “new volunteer or employee”. Your ministry does not feel the impact. “Business” continues as usual. We view every client relationship like a partnership and believe our success is the result of our personal support and service.

What questions do I ask when choosing a bookkeeper?

Do you understand designated (restricted) funds, how to set up a chart of accounts that fit the ministries, and do you have a general knowledge of church bookkeeping?

Is there still a need for an employee or volunteer and what is their responsibilities?

You will still need a volunteer or an employee on behalf of the church to scan and send bills that come in the mail and to send approved check requests.
