Managing Money in Light of Eternity


We would like to invite you into a conversation about money and how to use it for the glory of God, to honor and obey Him.

If we don’t ask the right questions, we will never get the right answers. This is especially true when it comes to how we manage money. Are we asking the right questions about money?

  • Who owns it?
  • What is the purpose of this money?
  • Why has God given it to me?
  • What does it mean to be responsible with the money God has entrusted to me?
  • How does the use of the money I have been entrusted to, today, impact my eternity?

We believe that answering each of these questions (and many more) based on the Word of God is imperative for all Christians. Luke 12:34 tells us that where our treasure is, there our hearts will be also. If we want our treasure to be in eternity and focused on the glory of God, then we should be thinking about how our use of money today helps us move our hearts toward the promise of eternity.

Our time will consist of teaching, discussion, and application. After we have concluded the learning portion of this event, we will have the opportunity to engage with the residents of the Tenderloin as we walk around the area with hot chocolate seeking to have real conversations with the beautiful people in the neighborhood.

After becoming MVP and hitting a record number of home runs as a t-baller at age 9, I lost my ability to hit home runs and my dreams of a professional baseball career never materialized. Now decades later, I’m thrilled to be hitting home runs in areas I call “Calendar, Cash, & Calling,” and I’m excited to share what God has taught me. Don’t get stranded at third base—this blog is all about making it home in these critical areas of your life.
