What your church needs to do

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

  • Find someone from within your church to be trained as a CAP Money Manager at one of our training days. We also recommend getting additional team members to be trained as CAP Money Coaches to assist and support your CAP Money Manager. We can provide Job Profiles for each of these roles to help you find the right people.
  • To run a virtual course you will need access to an online meeting space such as Zoom or Google Meet.
  • Complete a CAP Money Church Partnership Form (downloadable below) and send it to capmoney@capamerica.org.
  • Set up your church's monthly donation to Christians Against Poverty (see details below).

When face to face courses are able to resume:

  • Use of a room to host the 3-session course with DVD facilities. This can be anywhere you feel is appropriate – some courses have been run in coffee shops, a coach’s home, and church buildings.
  • Provide refreshments for course participants.
  • Ideally you would book a CAP speaker to help launch your CAP Money Course. This could be for a Sunday Service or an event at your church and would include an opportunity for people to support the work of CAP. Your congregation will be encouraged to attend the CAP Money Course and to invite others to join them. The launch talk will also inspire your congregation about the wider work of CAP, giving them an opportunity to provide prayerful and financial support.

How much does it cost?

Monthly Donation

We ask each church to make a monthly partnership donation of $30 to CAP to help cover the costs. This helps to 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 an additional three coaches each year and will have an allowance for printed resources. Extra printed resources can be purchased via the CAP Money Team (all digital resources are included).
