Summary of Faith & Finances
Faith & Finances is a biblically-integrated financial education program designed for low- to moderate-income individuals. The Chalmers Center trains church and ministry leaders to use the 12-week Faith & Finances curriculum to shape a concrete financial education ministry plan tailored for their own contexts.

The training equips ministry and lay leaders with:
1. A ministry plan for financial education tailored to their unique settings;
2. An easy-to-prepare and teach Facilitator Guide and accompanying Participant Guide; and
3. proven, practical ways to walk with low-income people in managing money.
