To challenge poverty through the holistic financial formation of faith leaders and their communities.
A world of financially literate faith leaders who aid in the pursuit of economic justice and communal flourishing for all people.
We are a faith-inspired social venture. From our initial launch to future growth, we are committed to placing the following values at the core of our enterprise.
At our founding, we envisioned a digital space where Christian faith leaders could have honest and formative conversations around faith, money, and vocation. We wanted this space to provide quality financial education and access to resources that could help our faith leaders flourish in their call. We are proud to witness this vision come to life through our signature Faithonomics [+] platform. Free to join, this platform grounds our approach to holistic financial literacy education in community allowing faith leaders of different identities, affiliations, and beliefs to come together to elevate the conversation around economic justice and equity.
In 2015, research released by the National Association of Evangelicals prompted a national recognition of the unhealthy state of Pastors in the United States. Here are a few of their original findings:
Let that sink in for a moment. People God has called into ministry are leaving ministry due to financial hardships. Prior to this study, steps had been taken to reduce student debt among clergy, but little had been done to teach clergy the basic principles of financial literacy. Since this study, financial literacy has become 'popular' among clergy, especially Evangelicals (think about the rise of Dave Ramsey), but their approach remained singular and, for many, unhealthy--both theologically and financially.
The services Faithonomics will provide are holistic and formative. While providing financial literacy education we will also tackle the toxic theologies and shame we hold around money. We will recognize and fight the systems of oppression and injustice that play into the financial realities of our society's marginalized. And, lastly, we will help churches and faith-based organizations to become the primary examples of what economically just institutions in our society could look like.
