In my last column, I shared with you about the mission and message of our ministry. One Master Ministries is all about the lordship of Jesus Christ in every area of life. Finances are a key component to a Christian walk with God, as we should seek to be faithful in this important area.
How do we deliver this message to those we serve?
First, we share this important message about the lordship of Christ and financial faithfulness through small groups. One Master Ministries leads others in biblical studies that make a difference in families and individuals in the realm of personal finances. One participant wrote, “Our experience with the study was truly life-changing.”
Our goal is to offer three to four small group studies on finances throughout the year. These groups are biblical, safe, and encouraging for the follower of Christ who wants to be more faithful in their personal finances to bring glory to God.
Second, we share the message through personal, one-on-one mentoring. The heart of One Master Ministries is personal relationships in seeing life-change. Peoples’ hearts are impacted and their financial habits radically adjusted for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom. One participant in our personal mentoring program wrote, “We can’t thank you enough for the time you have taken with us. Having your help and guidance is making all the difference.”
In our mentoring program, we use an online budgeting tool to help individuals and couples learn how to create and use a spending plan to be successful with their finances. We continue to bring biblical teaching and training throughout the process because perspective drives behavior. Our goal is not just financial faithfulness, but life faithfulness! Strong and loving accountability is a key component to true change and we see this happening in the OMM mentoring program.
Third, we share this message of the lordship of Christ with children. One Master Ministries is committed to teaching the next generation God’s truths to live a life fully committed to Him. Learning God’s heart as it relates to money and wealth and then making some simple applications for a young person can set them on a course to be faithful in life as an adult.
Lastly, we share this message through the Career Direct occupational guidance system. Individuals who complete our online assessment and the live consultation learn more about who God has designed them to be and gain a clearer understanding of the occupation that may best suit them so they maximize the stewardship of time for God’s Kingdom.
One Master Ministries was birthed in 2010 and is led by a godly board of directors. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and depend on the generosity of concerned individuals and churches. Your partnership can make a difference in people’s lives as we seek to impact people for Christ.
