Stewardship Estate Planning

God calls us to be wise stewards of the resources He has entrusted to us and, as Christ followers, we spend our lives working to make wise decisions that honor God with how we use His money. However, very few of us think about how we can honor God with our resources past our time here on earth. More than 70% of adults in the US do not have a simple will. For most people, estate planning is one of the most important stewardship transactions a person will make and the process stirs up key questions. How much is enough for my family between now and when I die? How much is enough for my heirs? What should I do with the rest?

The Stewardship Estate Planning workshop is designed to help people begin to process some of these important questions. This 75-minute workshop teaches the principles of biblical stewardship, and discusses how those decisions influence basic financial and estate planning decisions. The goal of this workshop is to help participants organize and manage their affairs in such a way that they can free up resources to care for family and loved ones and help build God's kingdom. The workshop is co-taught by a Christian attorney and a financial planner, both of whom have many years of experience in their respective fields. As a follow-up from the workshop, participants will be given the opportunity to receive a complimentary consultation with a Christian attorney or financial planner in order to develop next steps.

Coming Soon

Willow Creek is currently working on additional workshops to assist individuals with other stewardship issues, including charitable giving strategies, stewardship issues facing small business owners, and cultivating the spiritual gift of giving.
