What your church needs to do

In order to run the CAP Money Course, you’ll need to:

  • Identify a few people within your church to be trained as CAP Money Coaches.
  • Complete a CAP Money Church Partnership Form (downloadable below) and send it to [email protected].
  • Set up your church's monthly donation to Christians Against Poverty (see details below).
  • Determine how you want to run the course:
    • In-person, virtually or both
    • Classroom, one-on-one or both
  • Plan a Launch Event and book a CAP speaker to help launch your CAP Money Course within your church.

How much does it cost?

Monthly Donation

We ask each church to make a monthly partnership donation to CAP to help cover the costs and to provide the course free of charge to all attendees.

The donation to CAP helps cover the costs for training, course content (video and workbooks), online budgeting tools, marketing materials and ongoing support from the CAP team. Your church can train additional coaches each year and you will have an allowance for printed resources. 

  • $30.00 per month - Suggested donation for churches with less than 200 regular attendees
  • $60.00 per month - Suggested donation for churches with 200-400 regular attendees
  • $100.00 per month - Suggested donation for churches with more than 400 regular attendees

For multi-site churches we ask each church campus to sign a partnership agreement and make an individual donation to CAP.
