Why This Course Is Important:

Financial Planning is a key part of any organization. Financial Planning, whether in the form of bartering or monetary exchange, flow largely out of religious thought and tradition. Secular institutions success is largely based on strategic financial planning, and financial practices from the Bible that have long been explored in the Christian faith are evident in their practices. It would benefit the larger mission of God for mission-minded individuals with training in Financial Planning to be in these roles as influential voice to the ever-challenging area of finance.
