Michael Castrilli’s new book, Parish Finance: Best Practices in Church Management, has been published with Paulist Press. The book, co-authored with Charles Zech, gives church leaders a guide to help achieve an effective, accountable and transparent financial process. Castrilli is the President of the Church Management Academy and an adjunct professor at Villanova University’s Center for Church Management and Business Ethics. At Villanova, he teaches courses on pastoral strategic planning and church decision-making in the Master of Science in Church Management program. He has also been a featured church management speaker at workshops across the U.S. and in Rome, Italy. In the book’s preface, Castrilli thanks three Maxwell School professors, Bill Duncombe (deceased), Bernard Jump and Stuart Bretschneider, as the preface notes, “who inspired him to pursue his excitement for budgeting and financial management,” during his time at Maxwell.
