It's Time to Lead Your People to Financial Freedom.

The Good Sense Movement believes that financial stewardship is a key component of Christian discipleship. But many churches struggle to disciple their congregations in this important area. As a result, we’re passionate about helping churches to train their congregations in God-honoring stewardship.

Why do I need Good Sense for my Church?

The Challenge

Teaching your congregation about stewardship is hard for several reasons.

Training your congregation in stewardship is a challenge. Many people don’t think of finances as a key area of Christian discipleship. Others are, well, a bit jaded when they hear the word “stewardship”. They equate stewardship with giving and have never thought of it more broadly. So they tune out when the topic comes up.

Some in your congregation are struggling silently with ongoing financial pressure and even crisis. They’re ashamed of bad decisions or maybe lifestyle choices that have led them into serious debt. They need help, but they don’t know where to turn.

Others in your congregation are doing OK financially – even well-off. So when you talk about a program to train them in financial stewardship, they don’t sense a need. They’re not in debt, so why would they need help?

The Solution

Good Sense has the resources, the program, and the expertise you need to overcome these obstacles and equip your congregation holistically in Biblical stewardship.

Believers in your congregation need a holistic, Biblical understanding of financial stewardship. They need to recognize that money is the chief rival God in our culture and they need to choose between serving money and serving God. Since their hearts will follow their treasure, they need to put their treasure in heaven (Matthew 6:21-24).

Some of your members need to experience God’s grace when it comes to finances – forgiveness for mistakes and decisions. Some even need a mentor to help them on the path to financial stability. Others need to be challenged to consider the kingdom impact their resources (which really belong to God) could be making.

This is where Good Sense comes in. We have the programs, the resources, and the experience to help you equip your congregation – your entire congregation – in Biblical stewardship. With over 40 years’ experience serving churches of all sizes, we have the expertise to guide and support you as you disciple your people in this key area.

Good Sense provides the Biblical basics on how to start using the assets that God has provided to you wisely! Good Sense also has a program on how to train your children in managing their money!

Alex DiMuro

This came as part of a great awakening for me to lead the way God would expect me to lead. I was not being a good steward of what God had given me. When I became more obedient to what God was asking me to do, and as I became more generous, He has continued to take care of me. It [FreedUp] totally changes the way you manage the talents God has given you
