This principle-driven personal finance course equips high school juniors and seniors with the perspectives, principles, and processes to apply biblical wisdom to their financial decision making.
Most high school students graduate without being equipped with a basic understanding of personal finance and how they can live out their faith through their finances
Rooted in a biblical worldview, the Biblical Personal Finance curriculum is a principle-driven personal finance course teaching:
The implications of believing God owns it all
The roles, responsibilities, and rewards of financial stewardship as defined by scripture
Five transcendent financial decision-making principles found in the Bible
How money is intertwined with biblical teachings on contentment, generosity, self-control, provision, gratitude, freedom, etc.
A simple understanding of the four uses of money (live, give, owe (debt and taxes), grow) and the biblical principles that inform each use
Processes for personal application, including goal setting, decision making, and basic budgeting
The Biblical Personal Finance curriculum is a six-module course with 30 sessions. It is aimed at the junior or senior high school students to prepare them for their first job and source of income.
This curriculum was developed by Ron Blue Institute (RBI) over a period of three years (2015-2017) in collaboration with current high school teachers and is being launched in Brazil for the first time in 2021.
