Kenton Beshore, Senior Pastor at Mariners Church: "Cecelia
Matthews has a wonderful heart for God’s work and building
God’s Church. She is a model of integrity, straightforward,
honest, a pacesetter for all who work with her and for her.
She is a wonderful friend, fun to work with, a wonderful
team player, and dedicated---she works until the job is finished.
Cecelia is courageous---willing to follow God as He leads.”
Barry Fager, Pastor of Finance & Administration, Coast Hills Community Church: "Cecelia is an extremely valuable member of our team. She's been with us for many years and keeps us squeaky clean. She is knowledgeable, conscientious, and cares deeply about our church and those we serve. I couldn't do my job without Cecelia and I highly recommend her."
Greg Golden , Senior Associate Pastor
and School Superintendent, San Gabriel Community Church and Christian
School: “Cecelia Matthews has helped to ensure
our financial operations are accurate, efficient, and compliant
with applicable regulations. The years of partnership with
her have been of great benefit to our campus. We look forward
to many more.”
John Kim, General Manager at Cottonwood Church: "I have been working with Cecelia Matthews for close to five years and my greatest appreciation of her is the fact that her numbers are accurate. One of my pet peeves in church operations is numbers that change or are a "moving target." However, Cecelia is always spot on. When I pull up the financials, I know the numbers are reliable and that has been such a strength to our church. Cecelia has a servant's heart in her approach, a broad and knowledgeable understanding in church finance, and a teacher's heart when explaining some of the technical items that often go over my head. She loves the Lord with all of her heart and has been a tremendous resource to our church. We find strength knowing that she is standing with us in our ministry!"
Dorri Robertson, Chief Operations Officer at Zoe Christian Fellowship: "I am grateful for Cecelia Matthews' accounting/financial expertise, accuracy and integrity. She has a servant's heart in helping our ministry and executive team with accounting and financial operations. She is extremely knowledgeable of church accounting, supportive of the many questions we ask, resourceful and patient. With Cecelia's help we have become better equipped to provide excellent financial stewardship. She is a valuable member of our financial team!"
Carole Swemline , Business Administrator,
La Canada Presbyterian Church : “With Cecelia
Matthews’ help we have implemented a more streamlined
contribution and accounting system, a better system of checks
and balances and a more user-friendly system of financial reporting---all
in fewer hours per week.”
