Extravagant Generosity: The Heart of Giving
Stewardship programs rise or fall on their ability to do two things: first, provide church leaders easy-to-grasp yet comprehensive help in planning and implementing the program; and second, connect stewardship to the spiritual lives of all the members.
Plenty of programs have good ideas, yet they fail to provide leaders with suggested sermons and orders of worship, e-mail messages, letters, newsletter announcements, marketing messages, and other detailed, practical help. Many programs talk about the role of giving in the spiritual life, but they do not involve church members in thinking and praying about their financial discipleship on a day-to-day basis.
Created by Michael Reeves and Jennifer Tyler, Extravagant Generosity is built on Bishop Robert Schnase's groundbreaking book Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations. Extravagant Generosity succeeds where other programs fail.
