A Holistic Guide to Building Wealth

Contrary to popular belief, financial planning is for the rest of us—not just the 1%.

Invest in the Change You Seek

Start with You and Your Money

This presentation covers important topics like:

  • Understanding your part in the movement

  • Discovering ways to contribute to or invest in the change you seek

  • Motivating colleagues to join forces together


When the Church and Its Members Mind Their Business

Be a Good Steward of Your Finances

(11) and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, (12) so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 New International Version (NIV)

When faith-based leaders and members run their churches and households as God’s owned-businesses, it opens the door to financial stability, economic freedom, and wealth for the common good of all. 

This presentation covers important topics like:

  • Minding your own business by being mindful 

  • How to run your household, and God’s household

  • How to invest in both good and purposeful stewardship
