In a time of financial hardship, God’s truth never seemed so clear.
Every financial literacy guru promotes strategies to skip the cycle of living paycheck to paycheck. So, why do churches get to ignore this? Is there a way to save money for church ministry that hasn’t even been dreamed of yet?
As seasons change in our lives, we face a number of decisions – sometimes based on our own timing, and other times because of circumstances outside of our control.
I encourage you to consider what decisions need to be made in your life to prepare wisely for your future. Proverbs tells us, “A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.” (Proverbs 27:12, NLT)
Thanks to the generosity of God’s people, Barnabas Foundation recorded an unprecedented volume of giving in 2021, breaking all previous years’ records for gifts received and distributed through the Foundation.
In total, Barnabas Foundation clients distributed more than $97.6 million in 2021 to 2,309 charitable organizations close to their hearts. This is a 21% percent increase over 2020 distributions, which previously held the record for giving in a single year.

The Impact of Your Stewards Fund Dollars Gratitude is overflowing from churches, ministries and other charities that benefited from your generosity in 2021. Leaders share story after story of God’s provision and how new opportunities for ministry came as a result of your Stewards Fund giving.
Ah, the good life – beginning each and every day by shuffling barefoot out to the beach, just a few steps from your back door. There’s nothing to do (ever), and not a single care in the world belongs to you.
Sounds amazing, right? Who doesn’t want the good life? Except it doesn’t exist, at least not according to the way this world defines it.
Q: How can I give to my church in my will?
A: One easy way to accomplish this is by giving through Barnabas Foundation. Once you’ve designated Barnabas Foundation as the beneficiary in your legal documents, you can then tell us how funds should be distributed to your church and the other ministries close to your heart.

In a recent conversation with a close friend, he repeated this question we had both heard by a Christian musical artist in the previous week. Of course, we both knew the answer — even though the issues we were discussing seemed insurmountable, as they so often do.
