What does it look like when pastors cultivate a culture of generosity in the church by actively teaching and mentoring people in the spiritual act of giving?

It’s generosity that’s contagious…

Learn how pastors from churches across the country, both large and small, have created a culture of generosity and giving by:

  • Preaching/teaching generosity because of what they want FOR their people, not FROM them.
  • Connecting generosity with SPIRITUAL FORMATION instead of FUND DEVELOPMENT.
  • USING DATA to encourage consistent giving and report ministry results.
  • Understanding the unique spiritual needs and giving habits of people in the congregation who have been FINANCIALLY BLESSED.
  • Embracing the MINISTRY OF ASKING.

Chris Willard offers pastors curious about the conversation of Biblical generosity a look inside the practice and habits of generous church leaders in Contagious Generosity—a roadmap pastors can use to accelerate generosity in his or her community of faith.
