Church Stewardship

Cost:  FREE (15 Online Videos + Downloadable Resources)

Church stewardship has the same Biblical and financial principles as personal stewardship - with added denominational and government ordinances that must be observed in order to maintain it's standing as a church in Canada.

This 12-video series is designed to help new and old board members understand what is involved in stewarding a local church within The Free Methodist Church in Canada.

Cost - Free

Gain, Save, Give

Cost:  FREE (3 Downloadable Videos + Discussion Guides)

In a very turbulent social time, John Wesley taught how to live (steward) everyday life as a Christian.  His sermon on money showed how biblical principles can be applied to life to create a better way.

Times are not much different today.  And Wesley's message on gain all you can, save all you can and give all you can is still relevant today - especially in our consumer driven, debt loaded society.

These three videos attempt to bring Wesley's message into today's language for today's young adults struggling with overwhelming consumerism.  Each video is accompanied with a Discussion Guide that can be used to facilitate the conversation.

Cost:  FREE (Online Video – Downloadable for Local Church Use)

'If you are attempting to lead while in bondage to the need to control, and the need to be the owner instead of a steward, you will fail. Your church will falter and you will do damage to the witness of Jesus"

Planning for Later Life (Retirement)

Cost:  FREE (Online Video)

What do you think or feel when you hear the word 'Retirement'?  Is it confusion? Frustration? Fear?

In this course we will look at the cultural and Biblical attitudes towards preparing for your later life as well as the financial principles in saving, investing and getting ready for retirement.

Why the “LifePlan” is a process that you should consider!
At regular intervals a congregation needs to take time to prayerfully consider how things are going in its ministry. It needs to consider questions like, “Are there changes that we need to make to become more effective?” “Are there areas we are overlooking where we could be involved in helping and reaching people in our neighbourhood and beyond?”


The LifePlan is drawn as a circle. This is because ministry happens in cycles that either spiral upward with encouraging breakthroughs or …sometimes stall, and spiral onward, in decline. Each section within the LifePlan cycle has been carefully designed to try to help congregations see clearly what Jesus presently has in mind for them as a community of his people.
