Resources

If you have been to a workshop, you can access resources here.

Financial Fitness Program

The Murray Center envisions churches becoming centers of financial fitness, benefiting their members, their communities and ultimately, their bottom line! In addition to hosting Wealth Building Workshops, church partners are expected to start a Wealth Building Ministry to help their members follow up on what they learn about at the workshop. The Murray Center is currently building resources for churches to start its ministry.

If your church is interested in hosting a workshop, contact Rev. Najuma Smith-Pollard.

The Financial Fitness Program is in partnership with CIT/One West Bank.
