The Finance Department was established at the registration of ECWA in 1954, with Mr. Earl Mehl who was SIM Finance Director and doubled as ECWA Finance Director. This continued with subsequent SIM Finance Directors until when Dr. Ugbo Mallam was appointed as the first Indigenous Finance Director in 1980.
ECWA subscribes to high principles of probity, prudency, accountability and stewardship. Hence, to maintain a good conscience towards God and men, qualified and professionally trained staff are in place to carry out these functions.
The Department maintains a sound internal control system to safeguard the assets and finances of ECWA.
The mission of this Department is to professionally assist ECWA in identifying potential sources of funds, adequately exploiting such sources and ensuring that funds available are meticulously and judiciously applied to achieve the organizational goal of glorifying God.
