Stanfield + O’Dell set us free! Before moving our accounting needs to them, we were stressed and worried about whether we were doing things right. Now we have a comprehensive plan that creates financial strength, procedures that work, and the confidence that comes with knowing we are working with the best firm to fit our growing ministry’s needs.
