What a privilege for Columbia Baptist Church to partner with Maple Trail Ministry Consultants for five weeks of stewardship emphasis entitled “The Treasure Principle.”

God moved in a powerful way through the Maple Trail team to move Columbia Baptist to record giving and serving. During this emphasis, the church gave the largest budget offering in its history. Record church giving in challenging economic times is remarkable.

Dr. Shane Garrison, president of Maple Trail Ministry Consultants, planned and lead his team in a holistic approach of worship, Sunday School, interactive large group sessions, workshops, community and financial analysis and family financial counseling.

Over 100 persons made a commitment to treasure Christ through their resources and spiritual gifts to build the body of Christ.

I would recommend Maple Trail to churches that are interested in challenging their people to treasure Christ through their resources and their life. Columbia Baptist Church is definitely at an increased level of stewardship as a result of the ministry of Maple Trail Consultants.
