I'm very excited about a new offering from City Church designed to balance practical approaches to money with the theological truth of what money means for our lives. Think of it as an opportunity to engage in a curated conversation about the Bible's vision for saving, spending, and giving, while at the same time acknowledging that money management is a complicated, and often painful, issue for many people. Whether you feel secure or insecure about your finances, this seminar aims to give you resources—advisors, tools, and biblical support—to help you manage whatever gifts have been entrusted to you. In the end, our hope is that we will all be reminded that the biggest resource of all is a firm foundation in the promises of a God who, as Jeremiah reminds us, plans to give you a hope and a future.
Join us and invite others Saturday, November 16 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church. The seminar will be led by Valerie Tompson, Executive Director at City Church and Duke Global Executive MBA candidate. Valerie has a background in strategic planning, finance, and accounting. Other participants include Clint Wilson, Pastoral Intern at City Church and PhD Student at Rice University, who has a background in education and theology; Jonathan Mueller, CPA, CFA, and Portfolio Manager for Invesco, who has an MBA in finance from the University of Texas at Austin and a background in financial investment; Greg Mayer, Technical Accountant for Shell Midstream Partners, who has over thirty-five years of experience as a CPA, working in both private and public accounting.
