Separation of duties
Should the same person sign checks and count the money?
Not if you can help it. Sometimes you have no choice while your church is growing.
But as a rule, the person signing checks should not be the same person who counts the money. Also, you should not have just one person counting the offering.
See this page for more on separation of duties.
Hope this helps,
