Seven Steps to a Practical Estate Plan

Through this biblically-based, practical seminar, the Missions Foundation can provide your adult ministry with effective, biblically-grounded answers to many of the financial questions they face. 

Topics include:

  • Defining your estate
  • Advantages of different types of trusts
  • Tax issues
  • Provisions for spouses and children

Gateways to Generosity

Pastors and church leaders, you might find yourself asking, “How can I help my church have the financial resources to do what God has called us to do?”

This seminar will help you develop strategies for creating a culture of generosity. Participants will discover practical tools for understanding their congregation’s giving patterns and methods for engaging members in the joy of giving to God’s work.

Private Consultations

Our experienced staff is available for telephone or in-person consultations regarding your financial and estate plans. We can help you pinpoint the way to ensure your estate is handled according to your wishes while giving to Baptist causes. This will often allow a family to do far more than they ever thought possible.

Bill Arnold provided practical information, in layman’s terms, whereby we got a good grasp on wills and estate planning—he was clear, to the point, up-to-date and very accessible to our attendees. He defined, explained and applied terminology in ways that we could understand—he could have easily shot way over our heads, but he brought it down to our level in a very gracious, patient, non-condescending way. Our people were not afraid to ask questions—Bill Arnold was very, very helpful. 

- Mark Bumpus, First Baptist Graham

Bill Arnold does an excellent job of explaining how people can leave a Christian legacy, taking care of their surviving family members but also having a positive impact on their church, association, state convention and other ministries that have meant so much to them throughout their lives.  His presentation is clear, simple, and comprehensive.  A big plus is Bill's offer to follow up personally with those who have additional questions or want help with estate planning.

- David Williams, Trinity River Baptist Association 

Bill Arnold and the Texas Baptist Mission Foundation were very helpful to the members of First Baptist Church of Amarillo.  Bill’s presentation to our church was informative, helpful, encouraging, and timely.  Thank you for helping our people consider options and better navigate estate planning!
