A growing number of church leaders today are taking bold steps to help their people become truly generous. These leaders are gripped with a sense of accountability before God for the enormous wealth we enjoy in our culture.
Leadership Network’s concept paper, The Genesis of Generosity: First Steps toward Creating Cultures of Generosity in Churches , previously published by Pat Springle, presents a number of passionate and theologically consistent churches as case studies in generosity.
Here are some great quotes from the paper:
“Growth affirmed the value of giving because we were seeing lives changed.”
“The issue of giving is at the heart of discipleship.”
“An emphasis on generosity only works when the senior pastor and the church leaders are on the same page.”
“It would be inconsistent to take on debt as a church while they taught people to avoid personal debt.”
