What is F.I.S.H.?
- Faith Capital is comprised of the money and assets that communities of faith contribute to the work of ministry and the upkeep of the church’s property. Generally speaking, this includes tithes and offerings that reflects a faith community’s religious convictions.
- Intellectual Capital is the individual and collective knowledge, skills, experience, and expertise organized to achieve a specific goal. Each member of a congregation has gifts and talents which are valuable if they are recognized, utilized, and developed.
- Social Capital is the network of relationships among institutions and people who live and work in a particular community, enabling that community to function effectively. Building Social Capital is an invitation to ask, “Who, outside of our faith community, should we partner with in executing the church’s ministries and goals?”
- Human Capital is about the implementation of projects and programs which are relevant and have demonstrable impact on human lives. As Christians, are we not responsible for assisting our neighbors in reaching their God-given potential?
- Fishing Differently is based on the F.I.S.H. capital concepts as described in the book, which is available on Amazon: Fishing Differently: Ministry Formation in the Marketplace
