WEEK 2 - GOOD STRATEGY IS BETTER THAN GOOD INTENTION
Before You Get Started
Welcome to week two of the How to Accelerate Generosity & Stewardship Masterclass.
This week is all about strategy. It’s something that we all know we need, but sometimes in our busyness, we don’t take the time we really need to develop our plan.
It’s true… good strategy is better than good intentions.
Would a new person at your church be able to learn what the Bible says about generosity and stewardship?
In this week’s masterclass video, Chris shares with us four simple ways to develop your generosity strategy: Preach it, Teach it, Celebrate it, and Model it.
We’ve also included a short teaching by Dr. Larry Osborne on why vision always outpaces finances. You’ll find this in our bonus section (to the left).
Video Two: Good Strategy is Better than Good Intentions
This Week's Challenge...
Ask 3-5 well-established members of your church to answer the question, “How would you describe our church’s approach to generosity and stewardship?”
Discuss With Your Team...
Gather your team at a whiteboard and draw quadrants. Record your answers to the following questions in each quadrant and discuss.
- Quadrant 1: With regard to our generosity and stewardship strategy, what is working? What should we keep doing? Do more of?
- Quadrant 2: What isn’t working? What is stuck? What do we need to stop doing? Tweak?
- Quadrant 3: In generosity and stewardship, what is our biggest opportunity?
- Quadrant 4: What is our most significant unanswered question? Challenge?
