money and possessions

DID YOU KNOW THE BIBLE HAS 2,350 VERSES ON MONEY AND POSSESSIONS?

 

Why teach on finance in your church?

How are money problems hurting the people in your church?

Money is a huge day-to-day issue in the lives of most people. Many spend a majority of their waking hours making money, spending money, worrying about money, fighting over money, and trying to protect their money. Alarming statistics tell the story of rapidly increasing consumer debt, saving rates that have fallen off of a cliff, and conflict about money being a leading cause of divorce.

Do you realise that:

  • 1 in 6 Church families have problematic debt?
  • The top stress factor among Britons is the amount of money they have to live on?
  • Research suggests that more than a third of us are anxious about how to pay the bills? 

Money, like food, is one of those things that we all think about every day – and, often, the thoughts cause anxiety resulting in stress. The most heard of questions are: "Do I have enough?",  "How much is enough?", "Will I ever have enough?", and "How can I get out of debt?" Anxiety and uncertainty can lead to absence in church, lack of energy to get involved with church affairs and decreased giving.

Studies that are life changing – gaining financial freedom

Results from our recent survey (this is a Compass USA survey. Compass provides the source material that Your Money Counts has adapted for the UK)

Changing Lives by the Power of God's Word

As a result of attending and completing the Small Group Study, the results show that:

  • Savings increased by 58%
  • Debt reduced by 38%
  • Giving increased by 70%
  • Volunteer time increased by 47%
  • And 78% of couples attending our small group study reported that their marriage was strengthened

The Impact Is Real because God’s Word is Real

Money is one matter that most of us think about every day. There is no shortage of those wishing to impart their wisdom.

The Bible also has a lot to say about money and possessions and, for Christians, that has to be a great place to start seeking guidance and good counsel.

BUSINESS BY THE BOOK

For Business Owners and Managers

Running a business is challenging. Imagine these common challenges: the life cycle of a product turns out to be much shorter than originally expected; management; cash flow; staff; marketing; business ethics; overwhelming legislation; technology; winning and losing customers.

Do you sometimes feel that your faith does not have all the answers?

Invest in Business by the Book and discover that the Bible has much more to say about managing a business than you may have realised. This study covers seven major topics:

1. The purpose of the business
2. Servant-based leadership
3. Making good financial decisions
4. Finding and effectively managing employees and staff
5. Organisation and marketing
6. Business planning
7. Business excellence (can also be used as a group outreach)
