Many low-income families don’t worry about investments and stocks and bonds covered by most courses, they just worry about paying the bills. This is a very simple basic course on how to organize your finances and see that the bills are paid on time and that money is set aside to cover emergencies..

B-Basics Of Our Beliefs

Few members today know or understand much of what the church believes. Few churches have any systematic teaching of the basics of what a church believes. As a result, I have written a series of booklets to help churches to orient new members to the Christian faith and for members who wish to learn more about the beliefs of the church. It can be used as a catechism for new members or a refresher course for members in long-standing whose church has never systematically taught them the basic beliefs of the church.

D-Ministering in the 21st Century 

Many churches in the U.S. today are struggling and pastors often ask me how changes in society affect the church.

1-Often have no church background

2-Fear of close relationships

3-Didn’t grow up in church

4-Families scattered

5-Many women work

6-Many members have no background in service

The message doesn’t change,  but the old lines of communication have been cut and we need to develop new lines to deliver  the message. Therefore we need to take a fresh look at the organization of our church and how we spend our time, are we just maintaining the organization, or are we making disciples who will carry on our work after we are gone?
