Financial Care

There are thousands of references to money and generosity in the Bible. In fact, it's one of the most frequently-discussed topics in Scripture. These ministries and resources will help you look at your financial life from a biblical perspective.

Financial Need

Budget Coaching

Trained volunteers (coaches) meet with participants over a period of weeks to help develop a practical financial plan for living on a budget, becoming debt-free, and applying biblical principles of stewardship to all aspects of your life. Coaching assignments involve worksheets and practical applications. All information is strictly confidential.
