The Art of Building a Generous Congregation
Last week, I launched my brand new program called The Art of Building a Generous Congregation, which will help you build a financially flourishing church—both margin in your budget, and margin in the lives of the people you lead.
From learning better ways to talk and teach about money, right down to every single email that your church needs to send about money and generosity each year—pre-written for you and ready to copy and paste, you’ll learn how to create a culture of generosity from the ground up, or from right where you are.
If you join before the end of the day on September 29th—that’s TOMORROW for those of you listening to this on release day—we’re running a LIVE work-through of the course with me and other leaders in the program.
