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.
