In My EPIC Journey, students will be guided to understand origin, purpose, biblical morality, and civic responsibility. Interwoven throughout will be content to help students cultivate an eternal perspective, see God’s plan and purpose as the reason for their gifts, and hear His call for them to create, have dominion, and fulfill the Great Commission with the Greatest Commandment.
This course trains students to understand how to use God-given resources for God-given goals and purposes. Students will discover how God’s word is authoritative at all times and provides supernatural wisdom for all our financial planning and decision making. They will build foundational and practical principles in stewardship, budgeting, saving, investing, and giving.
