ABHMS is launching our online Center for Continuous Learning in June! A source to equip ministry leaders with practical mission education, our premier event is “Starting the Money Conversation.” In this two session training, we’ll expand your financial toolkit with booklets designed around four common money issues: resolving debt, getting bills in order, understanding and using credit, and saving for our goals. The first 500 individuals to register will receive copies of all four booklets, plus two that are published in Spanisha gift and resource for you personally or for your ministry setting.
REGISTER NOW for this insightful 90-minute, two session event being held on May 18th and May 25th.
In this second volume of the Joe Joe in the City series, the serious-minded but likable Joe Joe faces his peers who ridicule him for dreaming of attending college one day. Joe Joe realizes that attaining this dream won't be easy, either personally or financially. When searching for answers, Joe Joe discovers a book about Mary McLeod Bethune, an influential African American woman who overcame poverty and the lack of a formal education at an early age to become the founder of a college and a government worker for the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration. In this lesson on tough choices, Joe Joe faces a decision that results in his own moral, spiritual, and emotional growth.
