Giving & Stewardship in Effective Churches

Kennon L Callahan

$24.10

Hardback
"From Kennon Callahan's years of consulting with churches of many denominations around the world come more essential lessons for effective church leadership. Solid financial resources is among the twelve keys of an effective church. This complete guide to giving and stewardship sheds new light on this important key." "In this eye-opening approach, Dr. Callahan asserts that money is not the first issue of stewardship. A church needs a clear sense of mission in the local community to be successful in fund-raising. "Money follows mission, not the reverse," he writes. "This is a shorthand way of saying that the stronger the congregation's relational characteristics, the easier it is to raise money. The stronger the congregation's mission, visitation, worship, groupings, leadership, and decision making, the stronger the giving."" "Here is a practical plan for the growth and development of giving and stewardship in your congregation, complete with action worksheets that advance the progress of the plan over four years. Readers are walked carefully through the four steps of giving: growing the seven principles for giving, developing the six possibilities for giving, advancing the five motivations for giving, and building an understanding of stewardship." "These four giving steps are also steps for mission. The individuals and congregations who practice these steps will advance their funding for outreach and mission. They will become strong, vital congregations, sharing their leadership and resources richly and fully in evangelism and mission." "Dr. Callahan asserts that the best potential givers in a local church are the people already present, the grassroots of the congregation; and those who have learned to be gracious receivers will become generous givers. "Be a gracious receiver and a generous giver," he writes. "Be a good steward of God's gifts - life, generosity, mission, hope. You will grow your own generosity and the generosity of your congregation.""--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
