Raise Your Financial IQ with Free Seminars from Heartspring

Date Posted: 5/23/2013

As the financial partner to the Texas Conference, Heartspring Methodist Foundation understands and shares your faith-based goals and generosity of spirit. We put our financial know-how to work, offering a range of flexible, socially responsible options that deliver strong returns. Our goal: creating more resources for you to do more good, from building and expanding churches and funding ministries to leaving charitable legacies and advancing causes that make a lasting difference. We partner with you – Methodist churches and members – to tailor and grow investments that help fund your dreams.


Financial know-how is important in realizing those dreams, making education a key component of our mission. Heartspring offers a variety of free educational seminars and other resources to church committees and individual Methodists. Rev. C.J. Taylor and other staff members are available to preach, lead worship, host seminars, conduct workshops and give presentations on a variety of topics.


For Churches:

If your investment, finance, endowment or other church leadership committee is interested in learning more about investment planning options, stewardship education, or endowment development, Heartspring has resources to help.


Our five-part Generations Endowment Series may be just what your church needs to reach the next level of your strategic plan. If you are considering expanding program initiatives, Heartspring’s Scholarship Program Development presentation may be useful for your committee.


Does your church need to build? Heartspring consultants are available to discuss our comprehensive Mortar to MissionSM bundled services program to see if it is right for your project. The program includes an initial consultation, capital fund campaign, loan, annual stewardship campaign and ongoing endowment development.


Heartspring understands that your mission is what drives your success. All Heartspring workshops, presentations and seminars are created to help you keep mission as the central component throughout the long-term financial planning and development process. Whatever your goals may be, Heartspring’s ministry is helping your ministry succeed.


For Individuals:

Is your Sunday School class or other small group looking for a guest speaker? Heartspring offers multiple presentations to benefit individual Methodists covering personal family finance, life income gifts, and wills and estate planning.


Our most popular seminar for individuals is “Provide & Protect: New Ideas for Financial Peace and Security.” This free program offers information, tools and resources for making important life and death decisions, and will help you create the best long-term financial plan for your situation. Learn how to provide for your spouse, children, and/or loved ones with special needs. Hear about how to protect yourself, your family and your property. Find out how to receive income for life, learn ways to reduce your taxes, and hear ideas about how to make your charitable dollars go further.


In addition to the presentation, each attendee receives a free planning toolkit, which includes helpful checklists, gift calculators, guides, and a copy of the book Provide & Protect by Charles Shultz.


If you have other needs, Heartspring staff will gladly customize a presentation or workshop to accomplish your goals. Would your church committee, Sunday School class or small group benefit from Provide & Protect or another educational seminar?
