Run the CAP Money CourseYour church can help people spend, budget & save wisely in tough times
The CAP Money course gives your church a relevant, effective tool to reach and serve people in your wider community.
Already, 18,000 New Zealanders have learned to budget, save and prevent debt through CAP Money – but with 648,000 households still in difficulty, the need for wise money management is greater than ever.
How it works
CAP Money helps to prevent poverty & hardship with a top-of-the-cliff approach.
Your church’s CAP Money Coach will be equipped to encourage, help and support course participants in a friendly group setting.
In the space of three 90-minute sessions, participants will identify how they currently spend their money and will be coached to prioritise the things that are important to them and their families. Participants will learn to live well within their means, while managing or preventing debt, and saving for the future.
CAP Money is relevant for everyone; whether they’re facing a reduced income, a job loss, are self-employed, or simply after a tune-up for their finances.
The course may be run as often as you like and is complementary to your existing church ministries. CAP Money Coaches will also be equipped to run CAP Money Youth – a one hour, practical introduction to money management for 14–18 year olds.
“I have been blessed to see the difference this has made in our participants’ lives, being encouraged that what we are doing as coaches is helping someone to get their lives on track financially.”

How CAP equips your church
CAP Money Coach training
CAP trains a coach (or a few coaches) from your church during a one-day regional or online training session, so they’re equipped to run both the CAP Money course and CAP Money Youth course.
CAP provides all the material you need to run your CAP Money and CAP Money Youth courses, including a Coach’s guide, participant workbooks and videos to play at each session.
Access to online tools
Each participant receives access to online budgeting tools. And your CAP Money Coach will receive online course administration and promotion tools.
Ongoing help, support and advice
Your CAP Money Coach will be supported by the CAP Money team, and they'll have the opportunity to connect with other CAP Money Coaches from around New Zealand as you run your course.
What your church provides
CAP Money Coach
CAP Money can be run by one facilitator or a team of facilitators who have completed the CAP Money Coach training.
What makes an ideal facilitator? Someone who has a heart for people and the desire to equip themto use money in a life-giving way.
Room to meet in and place to play video
While many people run their CAP Money course at a room in their local church, the small-group format and video-based content make it a perfect tool to be taught within small groups or local community centres.
By hosting a CAP Speaker for your CAP Money launch, your congregation will be inspired to attend and spread the word about your CAP Money course. A CAP Speaker will also share about the wider work of CAP and give people the opportunity to get involved with CAP Money or CAP more broadly.
CAP Money Coach trainings
CAP Money Coach training is offered online via Zoom. It’s a great way to equip your future coach(es) with everything they need to run the course.
