FINANCIAL LITERACY

 

BIBLICAL FINANCE

MCP Brokerage & Consultancy Services offer comprehensive biblical finance seminar for churches and Christian organizations around the team of the bible.

The Bible actually has a whole lot to say about money for starters the New Testament has 215 verses pertaining to faith, 218 verses pertaining to salvation, 2084 versus dealing with stewardship of and accountability for money and finance.

Without planning based on biblical values, goals, and priorities, money becomes a hard taskmaster and, like a leaf caught up in a whirlwind, we get swept into the world’s pursuit of earthly treasures.

Financial planning is biblical and is a means to good stewardship, to freedom from the god of materialism, and a means of protection against the waste of the resources God has entrusted to our care. It should be done in dependence on God’s direction and in faith while we rest in Him for security and happiness rather than in our own strategies.

The current economic situation has many workers worried about their personal finances. Worry causes stress, which hurts working efficiency; which in turn affects overall business productivity. Increased absenteeism, low efficiency, and low morale are common problems associated with employee stress related to personal finances.

The declining financial health of employees has serious bottom-line implications for employers. Employees who do not manage their personal finances typically are less productive and experience higher health care expenses. Ironically, those employees most in need of financial education are most likely to avoid it.

MCP Brokerage & Consultancy Services provides group seminars and one-on-one training which we found are the most effective methods. Depending on your company’s budget and is very flexible in our approach because we understands what will work best will depend on each individual business.

EMPLOYEE FINANCIAL EDUCATION WORKSHOPS

CHILDREN & TEENS FINANCIAL LITERACY

Financial education is a unique subject that requires specialized expertise to teach effectively. The quality of financial education instructors directly influences both short-term student outcomes and long-term impact on their financial well-being.

Unlike other core subject matter typically taught in schools, the topic of money elicits emotional reactions in people ranging from excitement to anxiety to shame. Each participant in a financial literacy course brings his or her own experience, emotions, and relationship with money into the classroom. Educators must understand and respect these emotional reactions to succeed in establishing financial literacy among participants.

MCP Brokerage & Consultancy Services incorporate the Trans theoretical Model of Behavior Change to measure a student’s willingness to change his their financial behaviors. To facilitate lasting behavior modification, we help students achieve a deeper level of understanding about financial literacy we uses Bloom’s Taxonomy of Higher-order Thinking Skills or the Depth of Knowledge Levels as a framework for teaching personal finance.

Given adequate instruction time, a highly-qualified financial education instructor drives participants to synthesize the lessons and make decisions in alignment with their individual financial situations. Few other topics taught in schools demand such depth of understanding; for most subjects students simply need to recall information to pass testing requirements.

Our vision has been to give students in Grenada the foundation they need to become competent and confident managers of their financial lives, and productive members of a modern technological economy.

MCP Brokerage & Consultancy Services have consulted extensively with individuals and organizations throughout the Caribbean and around the world. So far the consultation process revealed the depth of people’s belief that Grenadian students must be prepared to meet the challenges of the modern economy, for the sake of their own security and well-being in the future as well as that of their families, their communities.

We understands that our work has been the first step in a complex and evolving process. We look forward to the next phase of the implementation of this initiative. Students in Grenada will soon be learning to make informed choices and effective decisions about the use and management of money through the primary and secondary schools curriculum.
