Two Online Courses for Financial Health
The COMPASS Quest offers two 6-session online courses to improve the financial health of pastors and their churches. In partnership with the National Association of Evangelicals and funding from Lilly Endowment, Inc., both online courses are offered free of charge.
Personal Finances Course
This at-home interactive video training helps individuals and couples improve their financial health. This six-session "God is Your Provider Personal Finances Course" is filled with free resources from many of the leading Christian financial experts. When you register for this free course, you will receive access to the video lessons and additional resources, as well as the Church Generosity course. We recommend watching one video and completing the accompanying assignments each month for six months.
Upon completion of the Personal Finances course qualifying pastors and full-time associate pastors may receive a matching grant of up to $1,000 USD for debt reduction or a retirement contribution.
Church Generosity Course
This interactive video training helps the pastor, board, and leaders discover the best practices and resources to grow givers and giving in any size church by developing their own 12-month generosity calendar. The six interactive training sessions can be done for 20 minutes or more during regularly scheduled committee meetings. This course is offered free of charge and includes access to numerous free resources from many of the leading Christian generosity experts.
