Serving One Master God and Our Finances


"There are three conversions necessary to every man: the head, the heart and the purse."

-Martin Luther


  • What does God's Word really say about money?
  • Is God pleased with what my bank statement says about me? 
  • How can I feel confident of being a good steward in my personal finances?

Few areas of life present as many challenges to faithful service of God and neighbor as our use of money. Few topics in the Bible receive more attention. Come join a conversation with seasoned advisors in this crucial area.

Boston, ma


"For in its welfare you will find your welfare," wrote the prophet, after instructing the Jewish exiles to pray for the land they inhabited. We manage our personal finances for the service of God and neighbor. But what about our collective resources?

  • How do we order our common economic life?
  • Are there economic policies Christians should categorically endorse, reject?
  • What about the poor and disadvantaged in a merit-based marketplace?
  • What about when orthodox believers disagree? 

Come hear economists Stephen L.S. Smith and Nathan Barczi in dialog, with others joining the conversation. 

Bring your toughest questions and strongest convictions.
