Greetings Ken Battles!

Merry Christmas Compass Urban family from Ken and Sharon Battles and our goddaughter Maia Reeves!

Thank you for your prayers and support of Compass Urban Stewardship Ministries during 2016. Significant activities over the past 12 months include,
  • Supported Compass Finances God’s Way in its growth to have a steady presence in 54 countries.
  • Facilitated 8 seminars (God’s Plan for Financial Freedom, God Speaks Your Love Language and Spiritual Leadership).

  • Presented at the Asbury Project in Orlando, Florida.

  • Supported churches in starting the Navigating Finances God’s Way study.
  • Participated in a task force to develop membership, partnership and coaching practices under Compass Finances God’s Way.
  • Completed BE I (Principles for Biblical Entrepreneurship) and BE II (Practices of Biblical Entrepreneurship) which allowed for refining and prioritizing ministry goals and consider all relevant variables for creating a sustainable ministry.
  • Identified two “Just One More” candidates to disciple in 2017 in support of ministry growth.
On the personal side
  • I suffered the loss of my life-long best friend (Lonnie Burton) and the gain of an amazing god-daughter (Maia Reeves).
  • Sharon and I celebrated 36 years of marriage and 40 years of friendship.
  • I celebrated 38 years of continuous employment, and have been able to maintain a healthy work/life/ministry balance.
  • My relationship with God grows stronger every day.
​​God is good.

Visit and like the Compass Urban Facebook page for details on the activities above and more. We continue to be encouraged by those who share testimonies on how the biblical principles and practical applications provided by Compass Urban is drawing people closer to God and transforming lives. Your prayers and support allow this ministry to have an impact, both immediate and generational.


​​I would like to offer you an end of the year opportunity to assist Compass Urban and Compass Finances God's Way in turning, as Howard Dayton says, “servants of debt into servants of Christ”. You can also assist us in teaching His people how to love God and others the way He loves us and become spiritual servant leaders.

Prayerfully considering sending a year-end, tax deductible donation by December 31. A supporter has offered to match the first $50,000 donated towards Compass Finances God's Way!  So I would like to redirect 10% of all December donations to Compass Urban to Compass Finances God's Way.  

As a way of saying thanks for a gift of $25 or more, I will send you the Navigating Finances God’s Way six-lesson DVD series (including workbook) for your personal use or to bless someone with. It is a great tool for learning and applying how to best manage money from God’s point of view.  

Click on this link to Donate Now. Or send a check payable to Compass Urban to the mailing address in the signature line below.

We also ask that you prayerfully consider Compass Urban in your one-time or recurring giving in 2017.

Let us all thank God in advance for His promise to bless you in your giving. And may you and your family have a very Merry Christmas as you celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Best regards and blessings,


Ken Battles
