What are Financial Coaches?

Finance coaches are individuals within the church who have demonstrated a level of character, giftedness, and competency in the area of stewardship. In addition to having completed Crown Financial (Stewardship One), they have been equipped with special training to assist people with their financial situations.

Everyone faces financial challenges from time to time. Job loss, health problems, divorce, or debt can cause tremendous financial and emotional strain.
