  • Handling Our Wealth

    Money affects every aspect of our lives.  It is one of the acid tests of character and so it is not surprising that scripture has a lot to say about it. 

    Did you know that there are over 2,300 verses in the Bible that deal with our possessions?  Jesus knew how important it was to talk about since two-thirds of his parables address the topic.  Why is money and our possessions such an issue for God?  The way we handle our money doesn’t just affect us in our pocketbook, it affects us spiritually.  How we handle our money affects our relationship with the Lord.

  • How to Create and Use a Narrative Budget

    Webinar (For Churches)

    In this webinar, Rick Droog, Stewardship Consultant at Barnabas Foundation discusses how to create and use a narrative budget. When proposing annual budgets, most church leaders present their congregations with various line items and lots of numbers. A popular and extremely effective approach currently being used is to “tell the story” behind the numbers. This is referred to as a Narrative Budget, and it provides your congregation with a vision of your ministry, rather than just a spreadsheet of line items.
