DonorDirect is excited to celebrate a 19-year partnership with Crown Financial Ministries this year!
Crown Financial Ministries is headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, and has a mission of advancing God’s Principles of Stewardship and Life. Their vision is to see believers all over the world committed to managing all that we are, have, and influence for His glory so that lives are transformed, economies flourish, and the Gospel is spread to all nations.
What They Teach
With over 50 Crown locations around the world and over 25 more coming soon, Crown Financial Ministries offers in-person and online courses that focus on six Biblically-based stewardship topics:
- Money and Resources (Luke 12:42-43)
- Career and Identity (Psalm 139:13-15)
- Business and Organizational (Colossians 3:23-24)
- Gospel and Discipleship (Matthew 28:19-20)
- Generational and Legacy (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)
- Environmental and Farming (Proverbs 28:19)
In addition to providing access to their stewardship courses on-location and through church programs, Crown offers online courses for virtual learning. They also share their Crown Radio and Stewardship Podcast programs with listeners around the world and have many resources available for purchase through their Advanced StudioOnline store.
Online visitors also have a wealth of individual resources available at their fingertips. Whether searching for a Christian financial coach, credit counselor, or career consultant or simply exploring the handy financial calculators and starting a debt management plan, Crown offers many powerful resources to help visitors reach their individual stewardship goals.
Crown also has plans to reach more people with redemptive stewardship training through their alliance partners. A Crown Alliance Partner is an organization that develops an on-going training initiative to reach outside their walls to train other people and groups to deliver Redemptive Stewardship teaching. They use Crown materials to minister to people in need. Crown currently has over 100 alliance partners or local leaders, including some of DonorDirect’s other ministry partners, and they include churches, denominations, businesses, ministries, non-profits, schools, and more.
Crown’s annual Gathering event has gone virtual this year and is coming up in early October 2020! The Virtual Gathering Event will be approximately one hour long during which they’ll share inspirational stories of life change, Chuck Bentley (CEO of Crown Financial Ministries) will teach on How to Thrive in the Unexpected, enjoy a video update, and spend time together celebrating the Crown community. The best part is that it’s FREE to attend! You simply need to register in advance.
Even if not attending the Gathering event, we encourage you to connect with this amazing ministry and learn more about their important mission.
