I just recently realized what I wanted to do for a living and that is helping people eliminate debt and manage their money using Christian principles. My motivation isn’t to take people’s money or make money off of old rich people, but to educate those who know very little. I found your site and was wondering if you could offer any advice in getting involved in this area. I really appreciate the response and enjoyed your site.
The best place to start would be at your church. Ask them who they have relationships with that provides Christian based financial counseling. The two largest groups that come to mind that train Christian based counselors are Crown Financial Ministries and Dave Ramsey. Ramsey has a course he sells to train counselors and then sends referrals to counselors through some church network.
The Crown Financial Ministries Money Map Coach training course is here.
The Dave Ramsey Counselor Training class is here. Dave charges $2,950 for his class.
Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.
