Faithonomics [+] is a digital community where Christian faith leaders can have honest and formative conversations around faith, money, and vocation. Through educational opportunities, resource sharing, and networking, we seek to provide Faith Leaders with the tools, information, and connections they need to increase their financial fluency and flourish in their vocational settings. Our approach is holistic, which means we do more than teach you how to budget. From crafting stewardship campaigns to exploring new ways of rest, you'll fine our approach to financial formation expansive, but tailored to the unique realities of faith leaders.
From clergy and chaplains to nonprofit professionals and seminarians, our community welcomes your vocational reality to have a voice at the table. We are a community for Christian faith leaders who are ready to have honest conversations around faith, money, and vocation so we can collectively work toward communal flourishing and justice. Our community is free to join, but private to insure the safety of our members. You can request to join by clicking the "Request to Join" link above and answering a few short questions.
While the idea behind Faithonomics [+] is grounded in community, there is so much more waiting for you inside.
Psst! We are just getting started. Stay tuned for new opportunities in the future!
Thanks to our Faithonomics Partners, our community is free to join. Once inside, you'll gain instant access to an amazing network of your peers and a wealth of resources at no additional cost to you. You will notice a few paid opportunities, typically in the form of special events, coaching opportunities, and advanced courses/workshops. Charging for these additional opportunities allow us to continue to build and grow our services. But don't worry, we strive to keep all of our opportunities affordable!
Helpful Hints: A lot of our faith leaders plan to use professional stipends or development funds to access any additional content that might be helpful to their vocational setting. Don't have a professional stipend? Ask your employer to sponsor a space for you and your colleagues.
Launched in July 2021 by Rev. Rayce Lamb, Faithonomics is a social venture committed to challenging poverty among faith leaders and their communities through holistic financial formation. In Fall of 2021, Faithonomics was selected to participate in the Do Good X Startup Accelerator where the idea for the Faithonomics [+] platform was born.
