Special support for this episode was given by the South Carolina Baptist Ministries of Aging. Joining us this week is Nathan McCarthy, President, and CEO of the Baptist Foundation of South Carolina. Nathan, and his team, at the Baptist Foundation are passionate about seeing churches reach their communities with the gospel. The Baptist Foundation seeks to support these gospel-centric ministries by promoting and encouraging legacy planning, helping with investment management services, and equipping churches with the tools necessary to promote wise financial stewardship from the top down. Hosts for this week's Podcast: Chris Reinolds of Killian Baptist Church (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) George Bullard the CMBA Director (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) Highlights: We firmly believe that the church is going to be the vehicle that's going to change culture. When the church begins to teach some basic things, not just about tithing but from a holistic point of view that generosity effects all things, time, talents and treasure, then people open their eyes and they begin to prayerfully look for ways to worship God through their money, through their generosity, through their giving and that changes everything for the church. One of the things that's most startling here in South Carolina is that seven out of ten people pass away with no formal planning at all. Ultimately it's going to come down to honestly that sheep, that follower of Christ that's sitting in the pew when God begins to pluck their heart and they begin to see their money in a bigger picture. That God owns it all. When [someone plans] properly [for their financial future], Uncle Sam doesn't get his cut. The money gets to go to God's kingdom, which furthers the ministries that we have here in South Carolina. What the church needs to stress and teach is, "Hey, you need to pray about this because this is God's money and it was given to you and you are a steward and where does God want it to go."
