A 2017 course by Bill Kirkemo at Nazarene Theological Seminary offers a “study of Christian financial management from three perspectives.

Second, the course helps the ministers-in-training to develop sound personal financial processes including personal budgeting, tax-wise ministerial compensation planning, and retirement planning. Finally, students are exposed to tools that can be used in promoting stewardship among congregants.”
