This God vs. Money Participant Guide together with the God vs. Money DVD (ISBN 9781501891571) provide a process for applying key principles from the main book, God vs. Money (ISBN9781501868115), in the participants' own ministry context. This study is for leaders in churches and other ministry settings who have responsibility for capital campaigns, budgets, stewardship, planned giving, and other financial concerns. The typical study groups include finance committees, stewardship teams, foundation boards, and finance-related staff teams. The study is also recommended for continuing education of pastors and other church leaders.
A copy of the main book (God vs. Money, ISBN9781501868115)is required for each participant and a copy of the DVD (ISBN 9781501891571) is required for each group. Prior to each group session, participants should read a section of the book. Sessions start with a 7-10 minute video from the DVD featuring Clif Christopher. Using the Guide, participants complete a variety of activities focused on application of key points from the prescribed reading, including discussion questions, personal reflection, group problem-solving activities, and other actions. The Guide serves as a workbook, giving each participant a place to record their thoughts and insights from the group, and to plan next steps.
