Local church pastors are invited to join in a six-week online study of Saving Grace: A Guide to Financial Well-Being, a new personal money management curriculum that seeks to promote financial wellness for clergy and laity. The Zoom study, led by the Rev. Jeff Vanderhoff, will run Wednesday evenings from April 14-May 19 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
The six-session curriculum is guided by Wesleyan values and speaks to key money management topics—such as saving, earning, giving, spending and debt. Developed in response to an expressed need among clergy, it offers separate workbooks for clergy and laity. The clergy workbook addresses many of the financial matters unique to U.S. clergy.
The April 14-May 19 session will allow pastors to go through the study using the clergy workbook, then lead those in their congregation using the workbook designed for laity. The online class will be limited to 18 participants. Those who attend all six sessions will earn 1 CEU.
Saving Grace includes videos, participant workbooks, a leader guide and devotional materials. Additional materials cover matters specific to clergy finances. Resources are available either in print or eBook with videos offered on DVD or streaming through UMPH's online platform, AmplifyMedia.com. They can be purchased on Cokesbury.com and Amazon.com.
