Dr. Larry Lindsay, Dr. Phil Gelatt, Beth White: Developing Church Leaders as Caring and Competent Financial Coaches
Far too many Christians cannot find a caring and trusted advisor who shares their faith and values. Learning to be wise with money is one of the most important things we can do for our spiritual well-being. Making biblically wise financial decisions is a reflection of our relationship with God. This session will show how the Ron Blue Institute at Indiana Wesleyan University is integrating biblical financial principles to help pastors and lay leaders serve as financial coaches, helping church members learn to make biblically wise financial decisions reflecting their individual values and faith. The focusing questions for the pastor and lay leader financial coach training are:
1. How can Christians be wise with money?
2. How can pastors and lay leaders model and teach personal finance to church members?
3. How can pastors & lay leaders advance biblical financial stewardship to the church & community?
