Living with Purpose

Generosity is central to our Christian faith. Generosity is sacrificial. It is Intentional. It is done with purpose.

"For God so loved the world that he gave"

By exploring generosity together we find joy and pursue a life of purpose. We never tell you how to be generous. We simply offer opportunities for you to win with your finances and share your faith.

Some of the ways we help are through:

  • Perspective – Financial wisdom based on God’s abundant provision.
  • Knowledge - Opportunities to grow in wise financial management.
  • Encouragement - Coaching and accountability in developing the day-to-day skills to use the resources God provides wisely.
  • Tools - Step-by-step assistance in developing a personal lifetime plan to benefit heirs and bless God’s work in the best ways possible.
