Michael’s strength and integrity to speak truth from God’s Word was what our church needed. It wasn’t a popular message, or always received well, but it was the truth about God’s commission to the church and to us as Christ followers.

Brian WellsMinister of Education

Michael’s extensive training, coupled with his discernment and problem solving skills, made a positive impact in every aspect of our church.

Stewardship Is MORE Than Money. Stewardship Is Discipleship!

Every pastor would like to experience increased offerings! After all, more money, means more Ministry and Missions!  One Big Problem. Most pastors are reticent to preach about money! Surveys in one bible-belt state revealed that 60% of the pastors in a large evangelical denomination had no strategic plan to increase offerings. Of the 40% of those pastors […]

Misappropriation of Funds – The Simple Fix (Part 2)

Now that the subject has been broached, let’s discuss how to keep it from happening at your church or organization. Insurance statistics tell us that missing funds generally involve: A female, age 40 or older A church member The only person to account for designated funds or other accounts The person who reconciles the bank […]

A Church’s Nightmare – The Misappropriation of Funds.

When the misappropriation of funds occurs, it does far more than we want to admit. Most congregations look the other way or choose not to deal with it at all! I know of six congregations, and have helped two, within the last six years that have dealt with the heartache and agony of misappropriation of […]

Say No To Money

Most people don’t want a bigger slice of the same pie …. they want a bigger pie! The question is … then why don’t we have  a bigger pie?

Making Change

Biblical principles of giving and receiving – learning why you should talk about money – giving people practical tools to reduce their debt Surveys reveal that the large majority of churches do not teach on the topic of money. This is unfortunate because Jesus talked more about money and finances than any other subject. Let Michael […]

One Pastor’s Perspective

Calvin Hubbard, Senior Pastor at Barksdale Baptist Church in Bossier City, LA, recently hosted a SFL Revival. The following post is his experience. Earlier this year, Bro. Michael visited me about helping our church in the area of financial discipleship.

They Call Themselves "A Family"

I recently had the blessing of attending the COMPASS 2014 International Friends and Family Retreat at St. Simons Island, GA. These folks came from all around America and Canada – eh:) COMPASS is a financial ministry that teaches a holistic, biblical approach to personal finances. Howard Dayton, COMPASS’s Founder, is also Co-founder of Crown financial Ministries […]

Not Enough Preachers?

A preaching draught? You’ve got to be  kidding! You can’t go anywhere without hearing a sermon about something.  From my perspective, however, there is a lack of preaching about the biblical principles of finances. Interestingly, it’s the topic Jesus talked so much about.  Almost half of the parables are about money and possessions. He talked more about finances more […]
