Research Strategy

We began by searching for accounting firms that were established before or in 2006, and offer auditing services to churches in South Florida. Accounting firms located in South Florida that provide similar services were also included. We expanded our search to include terms such as "religious organizations" and "faith-based organizations". We also noticed that firms classified faith-based organizations as not-for profits.
There was a limited number of firms within the mentioned parameters. Also, majority of firms did not provide information on the churches to which they provide audit services. We were therefore unable to judge the size of churches. Consequently, we expanded the scope to include churches of any size.
Examples of firms that provide auditing services in South Florida, but have less than 15 years of experience include; Axiom Business Consulting (13 years), and Dennison CPA (11 years). We did not include them.
According to their websites Berkowitz Pollack Brant (BPB) and GLSC offer audit services to non-profits. We assumed this to include churches.
