Online Course Teaches Pastors How to Improve Financial Health

The Georgia United Methodist Foundation's Clergy Financial Literacy Academy is an online course that equips and empowers pastors to make better financial decisions. CFLA is now open and taking registrations for the next training of cohorts. The training consists of modules for both personal and church finance. The modules include online tutorials, exercises, and instructor-led Zoom sessions. Students will learn how to create a vision and a plan for their own financial well-being. The church finance tutorials will cover basic church finance and accounting along with a new tool, SOFTRO, which is a framework for church financial decision-making. CFLA is a cost and time effective program designed to build skills and empower clergy to be even better leaders in their churches. Students who complete the course and an evaluation will ear 2.5 CEUs. The cost of the program is $50. The estimated time to complete the course is 12 hours of individual computer time and six mandatory Zoom sessions. There will be optional Zoom office hours after the sessions.
