QB Issue Resolution:
I would set up a Receivable from Volunteers account, but do not choose the type to be Accounts Receivable. It rather should be an Other Current Asset, or Other Asset depending how long it regularly takes the volunteers to pay the church back.
At the time the church pays for something the volunteer will reimburse, record it using the Receivable from Volunteers account (use this account instead of an Expense account).
At the time the volunteer pays, record it as a “Deposit” and use the Receivable from Volunteers under the From Account column.
