Customer Success The Garden Church

The Garden Church began in 2009 when Alexandra Rouanzoin and her husband felt a calling to lead a unique church in Long Beach, California. Planting the Garden out of their mother church, Rock Harbor, their mission is “In Long Beach as it is in Heaven”. As a non-denominational church, they believe in the authority of the Christian scriptures for their life and practice.


Nonprofit Challenge

The Garden had a heart for ministry and wanted to see their city experience the love and transformation that God can bring. But, they felt overwhelmed by the internal processes they needed to implement to be a healthy and thriving organization. Their staff didn’t have the experience needed to do the work on their own and as a small church plant at the time, could not afford to employ someone full time.

Prior to joining Jitasa in 2010, the Garden’s financial operations and procedures felt unorganized, causing stress and unclarity on their team and board.

The Solution

Jitasa offers specialized nonprofit accounting services, designed to meet the unique needs of individual nonprofit and church organizations—for the Garden, that included simplicity, affordability, open communication, and a welcoming team.

The Jitasa team educated and empowered the Garden to make well-informed and responsible decisions because of the detailed preparation of standard reports and customized reports unique to their organization.

“Jitasa provided an affordable option for us to work with experienced professionals who understood our heart as a ministry and could manage our books for us, so we could focus on the things we do best without being weighed down by the things we needed extra support with,”
-- Alexandra Rouanzoin, Lead Pastor, The Garden Church
