Stewardship: A Practical Principal

Stewardship: A Practical Principal

Stewardship is a spiritual principle that informs us that we temporarily “possess” something that God has deemed special enough to “give” us. In this lesson you will learn three common characteristics to guide you to becoming a better steward.  In addition to conducting a concrete needs-wants analysis, you’ll also discover what you can or cannot manage. Together, we’ll explore ways to commit to improving stewardship in at least one area of PRF pertinent to your home, work, or church. This is one of the more impactful PRF lessons because of how it enhances ownership and intimately connects with debt and credit, giving, tithing, planning and saving, and wills and inheritance.

PRF-ST-100: Personal Financial Inventory
Premise: Everyone has to have a starting point for a basic and fundamental exercise of biblical stewardship and management over your possessions, resources, and finances.
Spiritual Implication: God has ordained for you to be more informed and empowered to “better organize their possessions, resources, and finances”, which has proven to include both the spiritual and the natural working together.
Prerequisite: None | Sub-courses: PRF-ST-105 and PRF-ST-110

PRF-ST-101: Fiscal Responsibility (NEW)
Premise: The way a person spends definitely has a profound effect on not only his future but for those that are close to him as well. The challenge when planning for the future is to create something that is foolproof. With all the choices presented to you, especially young people, you are bound to make financial mistakes if you are not given the tools to make sound, informed financial decisions. The course provides the learner an understanding of how to make these financial decisions that will set them off for a better future. Concepts and systems shall be provided to guide you in making these decisions … regardless of your age.
Spiritual Implication:  God is concerned about your spending, your savings, and your future.

PRF-ST-105: God’s Ownership
Premise: This is an important lesson to constructively engage the matters of our possessions, resources, and
finances because it is foundational to future conversations about giving, tithing, credit, debt, planning, savings,
wills, and inheritances; but especially with the lesson of stewardship.
Spiritual Implication: How you and I approach the conversation of ownership … how you and I allow others and society, both inside and outside of the church, makes a difference to every area of our lives regarding our
possessions, resources and finances. It is foremost a spiritual matter.
Prerequisite: PRF-ST-100 (highly suggested)

PRF-ST-110: Stewardship: A Practical Principle
Premise: It appears that so many within the Body of Christ do not and/or have not taken stewardship of our earthly PRF as serious as we do with other areas in their lives. Since we all have our own understandings of stewardship based on a variety of factors, it is important for us to be more effective stewards to see for yourself where YOU are in this area.
Spiritual Implication: With an understanding that God owns everything you and I have, this two-session course will increase your awareness that stewardship IS that critical spiritual principle that must be applied in our lives. God needs more stewards.

PRF-ST-120: Stewardship Maintenance 4Leaders (NEW)
Premise: Over the years, we have realized that leaders experience a host of socio-economic challenges that affect who we lead. On the surface, people look at leaders and generally believe that leaders are financially stable. However, we have found that there is a lack of knowledge about budgeting, obtaining life insurance, managing credit and debt, getting estate planning affairs in order and even utilizing the resources God has already placed in the earth to help us, to name a few. In this lesson, you’ll discover how to enact the stewardship principal through the eyes of key biblical leaders.
Spiritual Implication: Leaders that are not equipped in these areas due to shame, pride, guilt, fear or ignorance, MUST have a safe place to LEARN how to deal with these challenges. As we begin this journey with you, PRF will provide our future and present religious and community leaders the spiritual and practical tools to first equip yourself and then those you serve.
