Insight 260: FaithSoaring Churches Nurture Generosity
Congregations seeking to transform nurture generosity rather than raise their budget. There is a distinct, and in some cases, a radical difference between these two approaches that impacts the overall character and nature of the congregation.
A focus on raising a budget is a push approach that promotes the need to have more money to reach a certain goal. It involves placing pressure on people to give.
A focus on nurturing generosity is about spiritual discernment. Congregational participants are challenged to consider financial generosity as an important part of their Christian discipleship. They give tithes and offerings out of their commitment.
