Watch Testimonials

Presenters Rev. Frank Jackson, Rev. Donald Cook and Rev. Najuma Smith-Pollard have a track record of helping congregations and nonprofits set up wealth-building ministries that improve community members’ financial fitness and as a consequence, the church’s financial health.

2021 marked the 100-year commemoration of Black Wall Street destruction. We are experiencing a similar economic shift that points us toward the need to replicate the wealth building strategies that have proven to empower communities of color to build generational wealth.

Find out how to:

  • Buy a home
  • Get out of debt
  • Save for the future
  • Pay for college
  • Repair your credit
  • Start or grow a business
  • Plan for retirement

Each session is open to all, but the Fall 2021 workshops are particularly geared to pastors, clergy and lay leaders of congregations or faith organizations and nonprofits.

On December 1, we want to connect with leaders in San Bernardino, Riverside and Ventura countries. Participation is welcome beyond these counties as well.

As a trusted voice in your community, you can help your community members lift themselves up and grow their wealth. A church’s number one asset is its congregation. The stronger the congregation, the stronger the church.

Faith Leaders: Register now for these important strategy sessions.
