Prosperity Partners

Prosperity Partners typically meets on the first Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Ministry Center for First Baptist Church of Glenarden, 3600 Brightseat Road, Landover, Maryland  20785.

Through this ministry we provide information on topics including but not limited to:

  • Developing a budget
  • Balancing your checkbook
  • Cleaning up your credit
  • Getting out of Debt
  • Managing your money with spouse
  • Kids and money

There are two sessions for this ministry. The first session runs from January to May. The second session runs from June to December. The ministry shuts down for the entire month of August.

Mission Statement

Prosperity Partners is a discipleship of women and men working together to attain financial freedom. Through financial education and discipline we seek to live what it says in Matthew 6:21: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Our Vision

We hope to show people that prosperity is more than just having stuff. Prosperity is about striving for a way of life that directs our financial resources toward those things that glorify God.
