Episode 29: The Ministry and Impact of Financial Coaching with David and Marilyn Butler

About this episode:
This week on the Crown Stewardship Podcast, we welcome Crown Budget Coaches, David and Marilyn Butler. They have been serving in ministry together for over 30 years, which initially began out of financial hardship in their own lives. While the Butlers were going through a difficult financial situation, they were introduced to God’s stewardship principles through a book written by Larry Burkett. David tells us, “I’d been looking in all the wrong places for answers. Scripture and the Bible is where the real truth is going to be found. Rather than all the financial information of the day that I had followed carefully and well, only to prove how disastrous it could be.” Through it all, they learned that God was preparing them for the ministry of Budget Coaching. As Budget Coaches, David and Marilyn have helped hundreds of families and individuals - locally, nationally and internationally - to become faithful stewards.

Podcast Highlights:

  • David and Marilyn tell us the first steps they teach all their clients and common problems people struggle with (and what these problems typically stem from).
  • How has COVID-19 affected people’s finances? Are government stimulus checks relieving a burden or simply delaying inevitable pain?
  • You’ll hear why the only way to lasting change is through a heart change, not a habit change.
  • The ultimate goal of Budget Coaches is lifting the financial burden, which equips their client to better serve God. David and Marilyn share some of their favorite success stories and encouraging memories.

Our Guests

David and Marilyn Butler are Crown Budget Coaches. After their own financial hardships that led them to the brink of bankruptcy, they were trained by Christian Financial Concepts (now Crown), led by Larry Burkett, as Teachers and National Referral Counselors in 1986. They have organized and led Financial Stewardship Ministry teams in all three churches to provide training, teaching and counseling individuals and couples in the area of stewardship and financial decision-making based on God’s Word.
