Crown Financial Stewardship Bible Study for Adults

This is a structured 10-week Bible study course on biblical financial stewardship.  The purpose of this study is “to teach people God’s financial principles in order to know Christ more intimately and to be free to serve Him.”  Through in-depth teaching and accountability in a small-group setting, participants learn how to handle money and possessions in a God-honoring way. 

  • Biblical Financial Study Small Group Student Manual  
    This book is the primary study guide for the 10-week course.  Each weekly lesson consists of reading the lesson text, looking up Bible passages, and writing answers to questions about those passages.  Topics for each week of in-depth study include God’s Part/Our Part, Debt, Counsel, Honesty, Giving, Work, Investing, Perspective, and Eternity.

  • Biblical Financial Study Practical Application Workbook 
    This is a supplement to the Student Manual.  It contains the practical financial exercises that each participant of a Crown small group will complete during a study.  Each individual or married couple will use one workbook.

  • Your Money Counts

Crown Financial Stewardship Bible Study for Teens
The Crown 10-Week Bible Study Program for Teens  
A recent newspaper article confirmed that the number of high school students with credit cards has tripled in the past two years.  This growth in teen credit card debt shows a lifestyle of instant gratification and the inability (or unwillingness) to live within one’s means.  Several Apostolic Christian congregations are now using the Crown 10-week Bible study program for teens in the Bible Class and others are forming groups within their Young Group of members and converts.

This 10-week Bible study directs a group of eight to ten teenagers through a series of 10 lessons under the direction of a Group Leader.  The book used in this study has been adapted for the Apostolic Christian Church and is available from Apostolic Christian Publications.
