Run the CAP Money Course
Let’s talk about money
Everyone could use simple tools for managing their money. Many have never been taught how to put together a simple budget, make it balance, or put away savings for a rainy day.
With CAP Money Coaching, your church will provide the solution with a simple course that that has transformed the finances of thousands of Canadians.

CAP Money FAQ
What do we need to do to offer CAP Money through our Church?
First, locate at least one volunteer who can run the course (around 6 hours of material) at least a couple times a year. Then, you can email our CAP Money team at firstname.lastname@example.org for a Partnership Form to register attendance at an upcoming CAP Money coach training. CAP provides everything else; the training and materials to run the course successfully.
Who would make a good CAP Money coach?
You will want to tap some church members on the shoulder who would be great at making people feel welcome. Because the course material is so easy to pick up (it doesn’t require really any background in financial matters); and we want to see participants be engaged, encouraged, and asking “What’s next?” once the course is done; having that people person is really valuable. Also, having strong presenting/teaching skills is a huge bonus.
How can we help the CAP Money course be succesful in our community?
Once trained, your CAP Money coaches should have lots of ideas on how to use their course to reach out to people in your community. We would recommend that Church leadership work with them to identify specific people or hotspots to advertise the course to. Additionally, we think that your own congregation is full of passionate people who would be willing to share this with their own social circles; they just need to hear the message. We have spoken at hundreds of Churches across Canada about the heart and vision of our ministry. We see people getting fired up about how offering a simple financial education course can lead people to Christ and a community in His Church. Not only is this an encouraging message for your congregation, but we tend to see course participation rates double.
