  • Money Talk: Questions Your Congregation Ask When You’re Not in the Room

    Webinar (For Churches)

    We have hundreds of candid and healthy conversations with believers about money every year. More often than not, they’re talking with us about how and why they intend to bless (or not) their local churches through their God-given resources. 

    In this webinar, Barnabas Foundation planners will share information and stories about the conversations we’re having with the people in your congregation in the process charitable planning. 

    • What questions do they ask? 
    • What do they wish they’d hear from their pastors and church leaders? 
    • What inspires people to invest in their local churches – and what keeps them from giving more?

  • Raising Cheerful Givers

    Today’s kids will need all the help they can get to thrive financially in this world, while fully understanding the connection between faith and finance.  Our children and young people are under assault with messages to spend, be greedy and grab immediate gratification wherever possible.  Our culture is teaching our kids how to handle money.  It is not God’s way. Helping our children understand financial principles will not only help them manage their money but also become good stewards.

    “You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things.” -Matthew 25:23

    A few years ago, a biographer researched the life of the Duke of Wellington. He had no difficulty tracing the major events of his life, but pushing beyond public knowledge to an understanding of the private side of the Duke remained difficult. Then this researcher came across a box of his financial records. When the researcher learned what the Duke had done with his money, he finally discovered the Duke’s deepest values and most important priorities.
