Pastor Steve Scholl: Cypress Church

"The updated and expanded IWBNIN curriculum is as engaging as it is thorough, giving individuals and couples greater insight into all the major categories of financial health--budgeting, saving, debt, investing, and insurance. Beyond insight, the lessons create understanding and provide practical application steps in a fun and revelatory way, helping anyone who sticks with the program and applies its principles to achieve a sustainably healthy relationship with their finances."

What Your Church Will Learn?



Who should participate in this group study?

  • The group study was created for anyone in the church, regardless of their current income status. The study has on content for those who are financially struggling, those who are financially stable, and those who are in financial surplus. Overall, we find those who are financially struggling the most can benefit the most.

What supporting resources are there for this group study?

  • Each participant will receive their own workbook and hardcover book of the I Was Broke. Now I’m Not. series. These print resources follow in conjunction with the group study sessions. Other additional resources include: calculators, budgets, bonus video courses, and even coaching resources that will support them in their stewardship journey.

How do I create maximum participation?

  • The best way to launch a group study is to run a Financial Learning Experience and/or have a sermon series on stewardship leading up to the group study. Consider promoting the event through marketing emails, group study sign-ups, videos, and announcements during Sunday morning messages.
  • Additionally, consider providing childcare and food at the weekly meetings

Can a married couple share a participant kit?

  • Absolutely! We believe the budget should be combined as one since they are one. However, if each person wants to have their own participant kit that is up to them.
