Holy Currencies is a holistic model for stewardship and congregational vitality, moving beyond “time, talent, and treasure” to create missional and sustainable ministries. This model with its processes, enables church leaders to understand, develop, and utilize five other kinds of currencies besides money that are essential for creating sustainable and missional ministries. These currencies are:Time & Place, Gracious Leadership, Relationship, Truth, and Wellness. These currencies flow and recirculate to form a Cycle of Blessings which empower congregations to strengthen their internal relationships as well as reach out and connect with the diverse populations in their neighborhoods.
Holy Currencies: Six Blessings for Sustainable Missional Ministries by Eric H. F. Law gives an overview of the Holy Currencies/Cycle of Blessings model. It fully describes all six currencies including: what they are, how to develop them, the exchanges of blessings impact, and how to assist congregation members to value them. Also, this book showcases five missional and sustainable ministries which exemplify the Cycle of Blessings.
