|Historical Timeline Of
The Quail Springs Church of Christ
In 1994 operational finances improved because of the debt restructuring and an
economic upturn in the area. There was an operational surplus rather than a shortfall.
Tensions developed between the finance committee, who decided to form a reserve against
possible downturns, and the ministry staff who wanted to use more of the surplus
for operational expenses.*
