At the end of each year the Regional Office will have their accounts either Audited/ reviewed by a third party (based on the the income of the region) this end of year financial report is then sent to the Global Office and also email out to all Senior Pastors in your region with a note about how your budget was spent for the year.

This out lines when/ where and how the Regional Director will be spending their travel budget for the year, we just want to ensure we are traveling responsibly and giving equal attention across the region- don’t want to see monthly flights to Hawaii 🙂
Please read through the Travel Policy created for the Global Team as an example, we ask that working with your regional board that you create one for your regional travel.
