Finance and organization

Here you find articles that deal with BCC’s operations and finances, how we are organized, and how we work with compliance in all areas of the organization.

Brunstad Christian Church (BCC) is a publicly registered religious community and organized as a general non-profit association. All our local member churches are independent associations with their own boards.

As an association with international operations, BCC must be orderly, well-organized, and financially responsible. This enables us to create channels and meeting points for Christian preaching and instruction, both now and in the future.
