LBMC was founded in 1984 as a traditional accounting firm with a simple mission: to serve a great group of clients and enjoy doing it.

LBMC did not start off big but more than 30 years later, loving what they do and who they do it for has taken them a long way.  LBMC has been named a top 50 firm in the United States.  Today, they’ve become industry leaders in financial, human resources, technology, information security, and wealth advisory services. LBMC is backed by more than 600 employees – not because a business plan told them to be, but because it is what is required to serve their clients. As illustrated by their “Best Places to Work” recognition, LBMC is committed to attracting and retaining the nation’s best talent, positioning themselves to serve clients with the industry’s brightest minds. While it’s true they are a big firm, they are committed to finding solutions for each individual ministry – no matter what size.

Some of those 10,000 clients include United Methodist entities. LBMC provides outsourced Internal Audit services to GCFA and other United Methodist agencies receiving general Church funds. In addition, LBMC participates in internal audits for jurisdictional and central conference episcopal offices. When providing services to the agencies and episcopal offices, LBMC reports to the Committee on Audit & Review of the GCFA Board.  If you are a local church and are interested in finding out what they can provide for you, please contact Paul Demastus at  

LBMC is the featured event sponsor for the Professional Administrators of the United Methodist Connectional Structure (PAUMCS) and the Academy of Church Business Administrators (ACBA).

LBMC is honored to serve many ministries of The United Methodist Church.  Visit to find out more.
