Note: The current offering of this course is now closed.

Applying our learning from this past year and implementing some of the suggestions and feedback from current and previous students, our hope is to update the course material and experience and have a new offering available in 2022.

The information below was from the previous session and will soon be updated to reflect the new course offering.


This online curriculum is designed to help clergy develop their understanding and confidence with local church finances, and will articulate the components of a growing authentic disciple of Jesus Christ.

Watch as Rev. Ken Sloane shares what you can expect from this amazing course!

A collaborative work of four general agencies of The United Methodist Church, each session includes:

  • Opening Devotions
  • Videos with discussion questions
  • Case Studies
  • Leader /Mentor Guides
  • Course Support from leading professionals
  • and CEU availability!

The hope for the course is that participants will grow in their understanding of their leadership role in local church finances and will be able to connect and articulate generosity as a key component of a growing, authentic disciple of Jesus Christ.

A 6-Session Series with Topics Including:

  • Theology of Money
  • Pastor as Generosity Leader
  • A Disciple’s Relationship to Money

This helpful course is available in three different settings: Online (for individual study) or in Clergy Cohorts (in-person, or remote using tools like Zoom) organized at the annual conference or district level. All designed to help you, your church, and Annual Conference grow in generosity. For more information on planning a Cohort, contact Ken Sloane ([email protected]).
