Financial Freedom

Financial Freedom at Calvary

Do you find yourself struggling with your finances or living paycheck to paycheck? Do you have a solid financial foundation, but you wonder what might be next? Have you been blessed greatly and want to bless others as well? If so, keep reading below because we have many resources available for you, no matter where you find yourself in your finances.

At Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, we’re passionate about making disciples who embrace whole-life generosity, living in the overflow that comes from having Jesus at the center of all they are and do. Jesus taught us that this ideal is a matter of the heart and that our heart always follows our treasure pathway. With this, the journey of whole-life generosity begins with our finances.

That’s why we’ve made financial discipleship an essential part of what we do! We recognize that Calvary Chapel families across our regional campuses find themselves in various seasons of financial freedom, likely asking themselves a critical question directly related to their current financial situation:

No matter what season you’re in, we want to help you answer these questions by equipping you with sound financial principles and strategies based in the Word of God.  We know that financial freedom unleashes generosity and that whole-life generosity brings real contentment, fulfillment, and joy!

Our toolbox provides . . .

Generosity Collectives

Scripture teaches that we can inspire or “sharpen” one another as we share and discuss faith and practice matters.  Our thinking and effectiveness can be stretched and enhanced simply by the learning that comes through intentional conversation.  With that in mind, a few times each year, we gather in small groups to discuss topics like . . .

  1. Whole-life generosity and living in “overflow” 
  2. Giving best-practices that multiply your gifts
  3. Estate designs that will leave a legacy
