Insight 162: FaithSoaring Churches Nurture Generous Disciples
Congregations seeking to transform may have financial challenges. However, except during short-term crisis, congregations seeking to transform do not pressure people to give money. Instead they have a long-term strategy to encourage people connected with their congregation to become generous disciples.
All households connected with congregations are encouraged to develop an ongoing plan for expressing generosity. Such a plan includes a core stewardship commitment to provide offerings and tithes through their congregation. Further, they are encouraged to express second mile generosity through designated gifts, significant generosity of Christian philanthropy, and surrender generosity through legacy giving.
