The Bible says everything is owned by the Lord (1 Chronicles 29:11-12), yet we find it difficult to believe that we are not the owners of the material blessings and talents with which we have been blessed. It is a challenge to understand the freedom we possess as stewards.
The FSMP ministry provides trained Christian financial mentors that come alongside you and your family to help you take control of your finances and gain a new sense of peace and freedom. Grounded in biblical principles, the FSMP provides methods, practices, teaching, and accountability designed to help individuals free themselves from financial bondage. There is no charge for the program. However, the program requires a significant time commitment and demands a change in thinking and practices related to managing finances. It is intended for those who truly desire to improve and change their financial situation.
The program has two components, a technical component focused on your finances, and a spiritual component focused on biblical principles of stewardship. While there is no homework for the spiritual part of the program, a renewed emphasis on daily time spent in prayer and reading of scripture may also be an additional time commitment for some. The technical portion does require additional tasks and research outside of the weekly sessions.
Before beginning the program, you will be asked to sign a Participant Agreement that explains your responsibilities in undertaking this program. It also presents the responsibilities of FSMP. You will receive an FSMP handbook, and a Hearts and Minds Spiritual Manual, which are yours to keep. Each week, you’ll read a chapter from the technical handbook as you prepare for the meeting with your mentors.
Throughout the Program’s duration, your technical and spiritual mentors help you through the struggle of tackling your specific major financial issues as you learn to effectively steward the resources God has entrusted to you.
