Panel to Assess Church Financial Accountability

Ad Feedback

Tax exempt religous groups are closely monitored by the government and watchdog agencies.

In 2009, Sen. Chuck Grassley launched an investigation into the practices of several media-based ministries to make sure they were not misusing financial contributions.

The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability has now formed an independent commission to help address policy issues raised by Sen. Grassley and others when it comes to religous organizations.

CBN News spoke with Michael Batts, chairman of the Commission on Accountability and Policy for Religious Organizations.
