My Free Guide: 4 Steps to Engage Your Church Around Money and Generosity
I understand the hesitancy and worry you have around talking about money—it’s awkward enough talking to your spouse and family about money, and now you have to talk about it in front of dozens, hundreds, and thousands of people.
And, even when you speak about it as earnestly, biblically, and honestly as you know how, you still take a few bullets when you talk about money to your congregation.
To help you have better conversations about money with the members of your church and on Sunday mornings, I’ve created a free guide: 4 Steps to Engage Your Church Around Money and Generosity.
In it, you’ll get practical steps and mindset shifts you can use as early as today to start building a culture of generosity at your church.
If you want to leave feeling awkward, sleazy, and greedy in the past, or if you simply want to build a positive culture around generosity, this guide is a perfect first step for you.

We often think about the power of a great sermon. But we might underestimate the impact of experiences. When people experience God in a way that’s outside of their usual rhythms and routines, lives often change.
That’s why I’d encourage you to bring a Compassion Experience to your church. It’s an interactive way to witness the realities of life for children in poverty AND the church’s incredible response. Families in your community will see how the gospel is transforming lives around the world. And it will renew your church’s heart for discipleship, generosity, and global missions.
Compassion is currently working with the local church to release over 2.2 MILLION children from poverty in Jesus’ name, and I’ve personally supported them for years.
