Module 1 - Introduction

Watch Overview Video


In Module One, Introduction, we introduce you to the why behind what we will learn through the rest of the course. Central in our discussion is the idea that God uses money to shape us and we use money to grow in our faith and trust in God. This module will prepare you to engage with the remainder of the content in this course as we seek to lay a foundation on which to build a God-honoring life with all that God has entrusted to us.

Let’s begin!
