Prayerfully Consider Steps 1-5 Below

My friend, because you are right here, right now, I believe Jesus is asking you, “What do you want?”

Your responses may include something like the following:
“I need to get out of the financial mess I’m in. I’ve tried it my way. I’m ready for Financial Freedom God’s Way.
“I need to learn to help my children and grandchildren avoid the financial mistakes I made and do it God’s Way.”
“I need a qualified and trusted person to help my elderly parents with their daily money-management.”
“I need to learn to help others discover Financial Freedom God’s Way.”

NOW, if God is speaking to your heart, if one or more of these “needs” ring “positive” to your spirit, and/or if you like what you’ve seen so far, then prayerfully consider Steps 1-5 below.

Step 1

Recognize your spiritual and financial challenges


  • Do you struggle with finances? Is your relationship with God stressed because every time you sit down to read the Bible or pray, all you can think about are money problems? Do you argue about money? Are you behind on your mortgage, car, or credit card payments? Do you pay one card with another? Are creditors calling? Are you considering consolidation loans, second jobs, second mortgages, or bankruptcy?
  • Do you have other financial “issues”? Perhaps your personal and/or business decisions have not always been God-honoring? Living paycheck to paycheck? No emergency, college, and/or retirement savings/investment programs? Not enough of the right kinds of insurance? Don’t tithe? Can’t give the way you would like? Don’t have a will?
  • Step 1: Begin to recognize your spiritual and financial challenges.

Step 2

Discover how to resolve your spiritual and financial challenges

Question: How will you solve your spiritual and financial challenges? Answer: By following the process Jesus gives you to “Learn It, Live It, Lead Others To It”.

  • A close look at how Jesus equipped His Disciples to go into all the world shows you that He trained them to not only Learn and Live out what He taught, He also expected them to be actively involved in the process of prayerfully helping Lead others. Leading others was a means Jesus used to help His Disciples better “Learn It and Live It.”
  • It’s the same with you when it comes to the financial areas of your life. The best way to Learn and Live out spiritual and financial principles and applications is to help Lead others to do the same thing. That is why we are here to serve everyone, particularly those who the Lord may be calling to learn to serve others. You learn best as you learn to serve others.

Make things right for you and your family AND OTHERS–spiritually, financially, and emotionally–for good! How? You will receive…

  • Teaching: Bible-based spiritual and financial principles to help you understand the forces behind your spiritual and financial distress
  • Training: Learn how to use spiritual and financial tools to apply what you learn
  • Mentoring: Benefit and learn from the experiences of others as you apply the spiritual and financial tools to your unique situation–you do not need to “reinvent the wheel”!
  • Coaching: Think into the reality of your spiritual and financial situation in order to change that reality. Your Coach will help you draw out of you the spiritual and financial answers God has placed in you.
  • Certified JOHN MAXWELL Leadership, coaching, and Team Building Training: Learn to help teach, train, mentor, and coach others from the #1 Leadership Guru in the world!
  • According to the Bible, you live in a material world where you are continuously involved in a conflict between the spiritual forces of good and evil. In order to fight and “win” as part of this conflict, God makes available to you both spiritual tools and divinely inspired material tools.
  • For example, material tools, particularly financial tools, include some of the “things you do” such as budgeting, record keeping, and time management. Material tools can also include books, tapes, and sermons as well as some or all of the great Bible-based financial small group and individual studies, seminars, and workshops that are available to you today.
  • These and other material tools are great but they alone are not enough to “fight and win.” They alone do not hold up given the spiritual nature of your financial conflicts. For example, according to the Bible, if you try to rely only on these material tools then you tend to fall into legalism–“touch not, taste not, handle not”, etc. True, you can benefit from material tools but so often you still tend to crash and burn financially or at best fall far short of Financial Freedom God’s Way. Why? Because material tools can give you a ton of Bible-based financial information but never get you to the point of Bible-based spiritual and financial lifestyle transformation. Am I right or am I right?
  • First, you must realize that material tools don’t add anything to what Jesus already did for you on the cross.
  • Second, you must prayerfully ask for, receive, and put into action God’s divinely inspired and empowered ability to identify, understand, use, and pass along both Bible-based material AND spiritual tools. My friend, one of the main reasons why so many well-intended Christians try yet fail to manage their money in ways that are pleasing to God is that they focus only on the material tools to the exclusion of the spiritual tools. According to the Bible, it takes both. The good news is that God makes both available to you through this Financial Freedom God’s Way Academy.

Step 3

Consider how the Lord can help you through Christian Financial Ministries.


  • Managing your finances really shouldn’t be a struggle.
  • The financial areas of your life should be freeing, not restricting. Your life will be a lot more enjoyable and rewarding when your financial decisions are pleasing to God. You can experience closer family relationships, a debt-free lifestyle (including your home), savings for future needs and retirement, and a plan to pass on part of your wealth to family members and worthy ministries and organizations.


  • You will get the help you need to get out of debt, work to build and pass on wealth, and help others to do the same. For example, you can have a written financial plan and an emergency fund within 3-5 months. In 3-5 years you can be giving above the tithe and be debt-free except for your home. In 7-10 years you can own your home and be saving and/or investing for college and/or retirement. And along the way, you can learn to help others as well.
  • You will find us highly trained and accredited, reliable, trustworthy, and responsive.
  • You will receive exceptional “Second Mile” service and support.
  • If you are absolutely, positively ready to get out of debt, then work to build and pass on wealth–and help others do the same–you have come to the right place.
  • Since 1987 we have helped individuals, families, churches, and small businesses through teaching, training, mentoring, and coaching as well as small group studies, workshops, and seminars. We can help you! Is it time?


  • Whether you have or owe a little or a lot; whether you are single or married; whether you are a guy or a gal; or whether you are young or young-at-heart. The only things you must have are a good reason to be here and a heart that’s open to possibly learn to share with others what God teaches you.
  • Wherever you are in your spiritual and financial walk. Perhaps you are just starting out on the road to Financial Freedom God’s Way; have already moved in that direction but have also slipped, tripped and stumbled and fallen somewhere along the way; or you may be moving along that road just fine and want to make your journey even better. Wherever you are, the Financial Freedom God’s Way is possible for you starting right now.


  • You can receive ministry services live, on-line, and over the radio. But, don’t let the “on-line” format fool you…you will be expected to work hard, work in a timely manner, and remain highly accountable.
  • Your Seminars and Workshops each have from three to seven Sessions. Each Session will require approximately 60-75 minutes to complete.
  • Your Financial Freedom God’s Way Academy consists of four Phases. Each Phase will take approximately 90 days. These Phases are sequential—for example, you must successfully complete Phase 1 in order to enter Phase 2, etc. Although you must take each Phase in sequence, it’s your choice whether or not to apply for the next Phase. You will see an outline of each Phase when you click through to the “Overview Page” on the right. You will also find a more detailed outline of the Phase 1 Seminar and the Phase 2 Workshop as part of the “Syllabus” also on the upper right.
  • Your Academy and each of the Seminars and Workshops combine the best Internet-based teaching and learning technologies. For example, you will prayerfully learn, grow, and apply as you prayerfully work through videos, audios, PowerPoints, presentation transcripts, “bonus” handouts, and real-world case studies. You will be able to download everything for your own use or to share with others. Plus, you will have direct access to a professional Christian financial coach via blogs, emails, conference calls, and the telephone.
  • NOTE: Each of the Academy’s four Phases qualifies for credit at Aidan University. Take all for Phases and earn 15 credit hours–enough for a college minor.

* Some Seminars and Workshops will be available live at our new Chatuge Ministry and Event Center in Hiawassee, Georgia.

Step 4

What will be your requirements?

  • Time: As you discovered above, the Lord is making an investment of time in your life. You will need to do the same.
  • Effort: You will need to “work”–your Academy, Seminars, and Workshops are not passive activities. For example, you will be part of a Prayer Team. You will also have scripture memory, blog, log, and specific study responsibilities. You must complete this “work” on a timely basis or risk being asked to drop or restart.
  • Accountability:
    • Some ministry services require that you have regular telephone/video conferencing check-up calls with your Academy Team Leader,
    • AND you will have scheduled telephone/video conference calls with your entire Academy Team.
  • Financial: Yes, there is also a financial cost for any of our ministry seervices.
    • The cost for you to be part of the Financial Freedom God’s Way Online Academy, Seminars, Workshops, and other ministry services has already been paid for you by others as part of our unique “Donate It Forward” ministry support plan. Current ministry participants help fund future Team Members. HOW? THROUGH TAX-DEDUCTIBLE “DONATE IT FORWARD” NON-REQUIRED GIFTS TO THE MINISTRY SCHOLARSHIP FUND. HOW MUCH? ANY AMOUNT THE LORD AND AND EACH PARTICIPANT DECIDE IS BEST. WHEN? DURING OR AT THE CONCLUSION OF EACH MINISTRY SERVICE.
    • You will find the details of this “Donate It Forward” support plan by clicking the “Pray/Donate It Forward” link in the navigation bar at the top of this page.

Step 5

Follow the application process

The Bible gives you account after account of people who become better, kinder, stronger, more effective, more powerful, and more successful than they were before, and it can be the same with you! As a matter of fact, the word for “Hebrew” literally means “one who crosses over.” Like Abraham, you are invited by God to “cross over” from wherever you are to where He would have you to be, spiritually and financially.
More specifically, you are invited to “cross over” from wherever you are into Financial Freedom God’s Way by way of our Online Academy, Seminars, Workshops, and other services. As you “cross over,” you will discover that “Financial Freedom God’s Way” has little to do with birth, luck, or circumstances, but everything to do with choice, commitment to change, discipline, self-improvement, and hard work. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR HOPE, if you want to move from spiritual and financial information into spiritual and financial lifestyle transformation, if you want to not just act differently but become a different person, if you want a fresh start, and most importantly, if you want to learn to be used by God to help others do the same–then welcome, you are at the right place. What God has in store for you is so much more than just a transfer of information, He is waiting to lead you into a transformed life!
