Leading ordinary people to an extraordinary life in Christ.
"His Money" 
Scripture has a lot to say about money and most of the messages revolve around the reality that it is a gift from God, that much good can be done with it, that our hearts our prone to lust after it, and that we need to be careful because it can very quickly become something that we desire even more than God Himself. As God’s people we have been called to seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness and God promises that as we do, He will provide for us everything we need. Think of all the ways that we can be a blessing to others as we steward well…His Money.
