True stewardship means using our God given abilities to manage God-owned resources to accomplish God directed results. The Bible speaks more about finances and stewardship than any other subject. Our mission is to help you understand and apply biblical principles of stewardship to your life to glorify God and develop a stronger walk in Christ.
Through our Financial Stewardship ministry, you’ll learn what the Bible teaches about finances, budgeting, investing, borrowing, goal-setting and stewardship. You will also receive tools and resources to help you get on a path of biblical stewardship and stay there.
Whether you are enjoying financial well-being or struggling financially, single or married, small group or individuals, have a lot of time for a class or only a little, there is something for you.
