10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. (KJV)
The first question about this for us Christians today is this. What is this “storehouse?” Again the Old Testament pattern will answer this for us.
“Storehouse” is not the only word used to describe what this “storehouse” means. In 1 Chronicles 26:20, the word used is “treasures.” In Nehemiah 13: 13 the word used is “treasuries.” In 2 Chronicles 31:11, Nehemiah 12:44 and 13:5 the word “chambers” is used to describe the concept behind “storehouse.” Finally, in Nehemiah 10:38, both the words “chambers” and “treasure house” is used.
From the above, we can readily see that “storehouse” is a place for God’s treasures of tithes. But what are these treasures to be used for. This is the second question for us Christians concerning bringing our tithes into the storehouse. Compare all the Scriptures given above. Without exception, the treasures, meat, prey and/or spoil brought into the storehouse were for the support of the ministry.
This includes both buildings and ministers. They were for the support of the Levites all the way down to the most humble servant. These ministers and their helpers were the recipients of the benefits of the storehouse treasures.
None, absolutely none, of the ministers and helpers were to be left out. All of them were to receive their part.
These two things, then, were to be cared for from the storehouse treasures: the buildings and equipment and those who ministered in them and with them.
Today, many wonder why they tithe and the large blessings promised to them in return, do not seem to come their way. Could it be the storehouse they use does not support every member of the ministry like the above Scriptures plainly show?
For instance, the Bible speaks of the five-fold ministry of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. But so many, posing today as the “Storehouse,” do not recognize at all the ministries of Apostle, Prophet and Evangelist.
Consequently, they violate the above instructions concerning the support of all ministries…all ministries!
Many storehouses today simply don’t recognize some God ordained ministries. They will recognize workers in their organization, but not some of those in the Scriptures. These storehouses will fail to generate the large blessings promised to the tithers.
But God gave us a way around this. He instructed us to support “every good work.” To generate the return He wants us to have is the reason why God instructed us to abound to “every good work.” “Abound” here translates a word that means “to make wealthy.” We are to support God’s “every good work” to the point of “making it wealthy.”
In so doing, the promise of large blessings kicks in again for us. He said He would “abound” to us. He will also “make us wealthy.” At the very least, He will meet our needs.
This is the “storehouse.” This “storehouse” takes care of both buildings, ministers and contains the Malachi promise: “blessings so large there will not be room enough to receive it!” If your storehouse doesn’t even recognize the Bible ministries, they surely will not support them. Consequently, your return will be slight.
One final thought! Your storehouse should be where you get fed. Does your storehouse feed you with spiritual food?

Crowdfunding websites have been around for a while, but until recently we haven’t seen their true potential in helping organizations raise funds. Even so, organizations have been slow to embrace crowdfunding technologies, maybe in part because they are unfamiliar with how crowdfunding works and can benefit their organization.
Before we get into the how and why of crowdfunding, it’s important to understand the crowdfunding concept. Simply put, crowdfunding allows you to present campaigns online to potential donors and uses a combination of rewards and social media links to encourage donations. By reaching donors on the Internet (where they are likely already spending a lot of time) and offering them attractive rewards, you maximize the reach and fundraising potential for your organization. However, many organizations still rely on the donate button as their sole means for raising funds.
When compared to crowdfunding, the donate button is much more common as a means for collecting funds. Many organizations have become accustomed to the traditional donate button because it’s popular, they know exactly how it works and it gets the job done when it comes to raising funds. It can be difficult to embrace crowdfunding technology simply because it is unfamiliar. In this post I’ll be covering how a typical crowdfunding system works to raise funds as well as campaign results.
How it Works
In this example, I will be referring to a multi-sponsor crowdfunding system. While LADA’s single-sponsor and multi-sponsor systems work the same way, there is greater fundraising potential when using a multi-sponsor system.
To illustrate the crowdfunding process, I’m going to use a local church as my example. This church has a goal of raising funds for your Congregation Members Personal Needs, and wishes to use a crowdfunding campaign to do so.
Step one: invite all your members to start their own crowdfunding website as project managers. By the members starting their own project page they will be directly supporting the church because they have to make a donation to the Churches cause in order to start their own cause. For a local church, reaching out to church members directly would be a good start. Encourage your Members to get their own project page for their personal needs. Start their own businesses and build generational wealth. Jesus never work a job he had his own business.
Step two: Each project manager can specify their own fundraising goal and set of rewards. For example, a church may have a local cleaning company as a sponsor on their crowdfunding website. Encourage The local cleaning company gets their own sponsor page on the site where they may present rewards for different levels of donations, list company information and set a fundraising goal.
Step 3: Invite your contacts to visit your crowdfunding website to view/purchase rewards and share the campaign to social media sites. The local church would start by announcing the campaign to their contacts, and then ask sponsors to do the same. This gives the campaign a greater reach and more fundraising potential. Each project page comes equipped with social media sharing links. When posted to each social platform, a brief description of the campaign and link back to the sponsor page are included.
A crowdfunding website is great because it benefits everyone involved in the website including the organization itself, individual donors and sponsors.
The organization benefits because by the Shared Options System in which we all share with each other’s project. In my example, the church would collect all of the funds raised by various project managers through the crowdfunding website.
Individual donors benefit from their own project page that they have shared with their contacts. When your contacts shared their project pages with others you benefit when they donate to the project in order to get their own project page. You benefit from all those below you.
Sponsors benefit from the new customers obtained as donors visit their business to redeem the rewards they have received. The presentation of the ad is also beneficial as it raises awareness for the business.
It can be difficult to adapt to this new technology, but the reward far outweighs the risk when it comes to using crowdfunding for raising funds. Any non-profit organization can benefit from a crowdfunding campaign, especially when using the shared options system.

The LADA Group New Alternative CHURCH ECONOMIC System.
Fragmentation and poverty within our economic systems is unparalleled. It’s clear that we need new solutions and better systems. And the good news is, we have an opportunity to create economic systems that will sustain our world. The church is already a conduit in market systems – owning properties, receiving and distributing philanthropy, stewarding investment assets. Over time, the church has been at the center of building international development, micro finance, and healthcare systems. But now, we are not only asked to be sound economic beings, but financial change-agents as well. But how do we do this? How do we transform our economic relationships in order to reflect our belief that this is God’s world, and therefore, God’s economy?
Church Economics 101
A church is not a building or a set of programs or a piece of paper. According to the New Testament, a church is an “assembly” of believers in Jesus Christ. Without an assembly, there is no church. Thus, a church must always be concerned with attendance and membership.
A viable church must also be concerned with money. In the New Testament era, churches assumed the responsibility of providing for their own pastors, supporting missionaries, and caring for widows and orphans. All this required money, just as it takes money now for a church to operate. Today, those operating expenses involve not just missionaries and staff salaries, but also insurance, maintenance, outreach, electricity, etc. Accordingly, a church must be concerned with finance, as uncomfortable as it may be for a pastor to address it or for people to hear it.
How should a church address financial issues? Here are three basic principles:
King Solomon wrote that a “wise man will hear and will increase learning” (Proverbs 1:5) and that “where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” (Proverbs 11:14).
Many Christians accept that churches need money, but they resist any kind of systematic or “business” approach to money, feeling that it’s denying the spiritual aspect of church life. These folks would rather just pray or fast and trust God to take care of it. No budgets, spreadsheets, or spending plans needed.
Wisdom involves planning. It involves thinking through one’s priorities and goals, and determining the best course of action to achieve those priorities and goals. The bottom line is that churches are organizations. Like any other organization, a church needs people, money, and (yes) planning to operate.
“Churches are businesses as well as ministries. The success of your ministry is dependent in part on the way you manage money.
When Nehemiah rebuilt the walls around Jerusalem, he didn’t just pray the walls up. He planned, organized, and presided over a massive and systematic building effort. Nehemiah would consider many church members’ attitudes toward money today to be naive and unrealistic, and in some cases, downright ludicrous.
A local church then must clearly identify its vision, plans, and priorities — and allocate its resources accordingly. A wise church will then prayerfully consider what can be done to minimize wasteful spending as well as expand its means to accomplish more of its goals.
Pastors and church leaders are often reluctant to address finances, because the people don’t want to hear it. In many cases, people want or expect a “spiritual free ride” — they want the benefits of God and church, and don’t want to pay for it. And they get rather upset when asked to do so.
Yet as unpleasant as the subject may be, it must be addressed. A church without money is a church in serious trouble.
Most importantly, the Bible spends a great deal of time addressing the subject of money, and pastors are commanded to teach “the whole counsel of God.” Congregations need to be taught scriptural principles regarding money, and that includes tithing and giving offerings to one’s local assembly.
In the first century, churches met primarily in homes. Without buildings to contend with, churches allocated most of their money toward taking care of widows, orphans, pastors, and missionaries. The early Jerusalem Christians were so committed to these priorities that many of them liquidated their goods and possessions – and gave the money to “those who had need” (Acts 2:45).
Not many churches today are encouraging anything close to this level of commitment. In fact, even those churches who encourage a ten percent tithe (which is obviously well shy of the 100% example in the second chapter of Acts and yet in keeping with the clear tradition of the Old Testament) are not seeing anywhere near the kind of commitment indicated in the book of Acts.
Christians today, like just about every other demographic in society, are increasingly self-absorbed and less committed to church. When they do think of church, it’s more along the lines of what the church can do for them, as opposed to the other way around.
This lack of commitment on the part of individual Christians is leaving many church pews empty and church accounts drained. This is the surest obstacle that most churches have in achieving financial health.
Pastors and church leaders who prayerfully and thoroughly cultivate a culture of wisdom, courage, and commitment in their congregations will see greater results in their church finances. For more Biblical Business information go to: http://biblicalbusinesswisdom.com
Every day when we turn on the news, look on the Internet, or open the newspaper, we are finding discouraging news about our economy. To be more specific, we are seeing an alarming number of foreclosures, layoffs, corporate downsizing, retirement plan losses, and a meltdown on Wall Street. This economy has not only people and businesses in a state of fear and concern but also our churches. Everybody is experiencing uncertainty and anxiety due to these tough economic times.
So what is the Christian community to do? Are we to sit on the sidelines of life and hope the economy will get better on its own without any help from the church? No—we must act with urgency and work together as The Lada Group to provide ministries that empower people to empower their communities. A healthy economy is one driven by persons the church has empowered to give back to the community.
Through our Economic Development Ministry at The LADA Group, we strive to empower people to be better. If our people are better, then the church is better, if the church is better then the economy is better, if the economy is better then this nation is better, and if this nation is better then this world is better. In other words, when people are better, money begins to circulate, and when money circulates, jobs are created, businesses are birthed, investments are increased, etc. We believe everyone wins in this equation.
The LADA Group put the word “community” in its Mission for a reason. Most of Jesus’ ministry was done outside the four walls of the temple. We want to make sure we are meeting the needs of those within the four walls and those outside the four walls of the church. We are a community development group who has answered the call to move beyond the four walls that have confined many churches, and take ministry to the community where there are many needs to be met.
Our Economic Development Ministry has answered this call by dedicating itself to improving the economic status of the communities in which we interact. We strive to first empower our people who then will turn around and empower the surrounding neighborhoods, the minority community, and the San Diego metropolitan area. As our mission statement declares, we are called “to provide services to minority and women-owned businesses designed to strengthen and support these businesses to accomplish the ultimate goal of community empowerment and liberation through Christ.”
One of the most important things we do is provide educational opportunities to educate and empower people to be better. The Bible says in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” (NRSV) We do not want our people, especially our young people, who are the church of today and tomorrow to be lacking in knowledge. Therefore, we educate and empower people in the following areas: finances, employment, entrepreneur skills, credit building, resume building, interviewing skills, job searching, and much more. We strongly believe we must first educate and train before people can be empowered to go out beyond the four walls of the church. Take a minute to ponder and imagine what the economy and world would look like if we had more people with reasonable knowledge in the areas mentioned above.
Another thing we do at The LADA Group is strive to support business owners within the church. We produce a business directory with all of our businesses owned by church members and provide a copy to our membership and those in the community. This helps people to be well informed and aware of the different businesses owned by members at The LADA Group. We then encourage our members to support these businesses not only with their money and resources but also with their prayers.
Money alone is not enough; covering our businesses in prayer is priceless. One of the most effective ways our members are able to support our businesses is by the church providing opportunities for our local businesses to come and sell their merchandise. We do this by focusing on some of the major events in the life of the church. We invite business owners both within the church and out in the community to come so we can patronize their businesses. In these tough economic times, we must be creative and think outside the box by providing ways to keep our businesses afloat. Doing this will not only benefit the church, it will also benefit the economy and community.
We engrain in the minds of our members the importance of being in ministry to those who are less fortunate than we. Helping those who are less fortunate, those who sit on the margins of society and those who are poor in return we will see the economy strengthen. Each year we partner with different community organizations to help rebuild those communities considered to be run down.
Perhaps you have not been able to come up with creative ideas to empower your church and community. Remember that great ideas are not just in the minds of clergy. The people we see each and every Sunday sitting in the pews also have great and creative ideas for ministry. I would encourage all pastors to sit down with laypersons and brainstorm ideas which will empower our churches and communities, and transform this world.
We must not be afraid to sit down with those business owners in our churches and ask them how the church can be of assistance. Many of these persons are simply waiting for one of us to ask them their thoughts. Our churches are filled with people who have great ideas, some of which might be the one to make the pivotal difference in our communities during these difficult economic times.

GEORGE FRASER – THE IMPORTANCE OF BLACK WEALTH
George’s address to the Los Angeles Black MBA contingent in January of 2013.
This is a powerful message on how we need to think beyond our J.O.B, the job is helping us just get by. God didn’t put us on Earth just to get by, we’re here to live a life of abundance, to PROSPER, have DOMINION and have AUTHORITY. Unfortunately MOST jobs are blocking us from bringing our gifts to fruition.
Apostles, Bishops, Pastors, Teachers and Leaders now it’s time to use the 21st Century way of rebuilding your tithes and offerings by giving back into your ministry to insure that all your members have a business.
A Business is an organization of systems that will work for you whether you’re there or not 24/7 to Prosper you. In order to live the abundant lifestyle God Promised Us we need to be prospering 24/7 instead working for someone else to prosper them 8 to 5.
The Church has a Building Fund to take care of it’s needs so why not start a Personal Building fund for your membership to take care of their needs in the form of a business.
Remember if you feed a man a fish he’ll eat for a day but if you teach a man to fish he’ll eat for a lifetime.

Learn how to make money, understand the business, understand the product, understand the system. Its not about RETAILING. Its not about RECRUITING. Its about the SYSTEM.
Just remember that It will all come back to you because you are the creator. God wants us to be a creator like him and that’s what you’re going to allow your membership to do. Be Creators of Jobs and not working a job. The Head and not the Tail.
You’re just catching up using automation and modern Technology that will allow us to do this. Our System works just like the bank using OPM other people money for our benefit and not theirs.
Recycling Dollars between your own members. That’s creating a New Economy for You and Your Members Families for Generations. This is how you start to build Generational Income
A Business, an organization of systems that will work to prosper you whether you’re there or not 24/7
God never intended for his people to work for someone else. God wants us to be the head and not the tail. There is nowhere in the bible does God tell you to get a JOB. He says to go to WORK. In order to work you need an opportunity to create jobs
The LADA Group Entrepreneurship Ministry has a solution for you. It’s an opportunity to have your own business system to recycle dollars back into the community. Each church member will sow into each other and then reap the returns. It’s simply giving and receiving. It’s SeedTime and Harvest.

The church has been silents by the 501(c)(3) and the leaders don’t even know it. The way the government has set it up, the church can not speak out against things that go on in the community. The can’t because they will risk getting their 501(c)(3) pulled and they won’t be able to enjoy the benefits of the tax exemption. With the 501(c)(3) enabling the church to make and receive money free and clear of governmental tax, they can run it like a for profit business and make the pastors/bishops/or whoever is running the church rich.
501(c)(3) exemptions apply to corporations, and any community chest, fund, cooperating association or foundation, organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, or educational purposes, to foster national or international amateur sports competition, to promote the arts, or for the prevention of cruelty to children or animals. There are also supporting organizations which are often referred to in shorthand form as “Friends of” organizations.
