Is Wisdom International funded by the church?
People are often surprised to learn that Wisdom International is a separate 501(c)3 ministry and does not receive any funding from the church Stephen pastors. This protects both the church and Wisdom from budget conflicts, staffing issues, liability issues as well as any confusion over fundraising. As a ministry, 100% of our funding comes from donations given by our listeners.
How is Wisdom International governed?

Wisdom for the Heart, also known as Wisdom International, pursues financial integrity at the highest level. We have contracted with an independent bookkeeper to manage our day-to-day finances. A CPA advises the ministry, reviews our finances annually, and prepares our IRS filings. We have a platinum financial transparency rating with Guidestar.
