Henri Nouwen said that he’d never ask a person for money in a way that was not good for their soul. In this session, we’ll deal with the very practical financial necessities that you’ll likely face as a leader in a non-profit space, and discover the role that understanding money types plays in helping you raise necessary funds in a way that’s not manipulative, but rather life-giving. We’ll explore The Seven Streams of Generosity.

This workshop is based on Brown’s upcoming book, The Seven Money Types. True financial well-being involves more than getting out of debt and accumulating wealth. It’s about discovering how you’re wired by God, and how that wiring influences the way you think about, feel toward, and handle money. In The Seven Money Types, Pastor Tommy Brown leads you on a journey of personal discovery as he reveals the seven money types found in Scripture, helps you identify the type that best fits you by means of a user-friendly assessment, and coaches you on understanding, affirming, developing, and enjoying your unique approach to money.
