Business & Finance



We use the Compass Financial Ministry series, formerly known as Crown Ministries, for formal education on God's principles for a Christian in financial matters. These are 10-week courses of two-hour small group meetings utilizing a student manual, a student workbook and the Bible. In this course you will create an actual working budget, debt reduction plan and an investment strategy. We are currently offering the small group study only for adults.


Join the Financial Peace University's financial guru, Dave Ramsey, and his Bible-based curriculum that teaches people how to handle money God's way. The nine-week DVD lessons from Dave provide you with the information you need to achieve your financial goals.


We conduct periodic estate planning seminars providing the opportunity for wills and trusts to be drawn up for church members. We are interested in volunteers who are professionals in investment, tax accounting, insurance, real estate, financial planners, and estate law that would be willing to serve in an advisory capacity.
