Product Description

As Christians, we want to help people in need; it s in our nature. But sometimes, we don t know how, or get burnt out trying. In Benevolence, Teena Stewart shows us how to start a benevolence reserve in a church, helps us recognize charity opportunities, considers how different ministries can work together, and gives us ideas on how to manage those benevolence opportunities and ministries. With this book, learn everything you need to know about starting and keeping a ministry going. Stewart realizes, and points out in this book, that benevolence is a practiced, harnessed skill one that needs accountability, and one that will change our lives. The truth is that we do have the capabilities, organization, and passion to start a benevolence ministry; it s just a matter of keeping it.

Publisher's Description

We all like helping people. It s just a matter of knowing how. If you want to develop a ministry that embraces the poor, the homeless, and the brokenhearted, this book will show you the way. Benevolence is designed to aid a church in establishing and maintaining a benevolence ministry. Benevolence is a simple word for generosity, kindness, or compassion. That is the goal of this book--to assist individuals and communities in developing those qualities with God s help. Written mainly to equip churches with the means to launch and manage ministries of compassion, this book also provides insight for anyone wanting to fund, start, or participate in such ministries or organizations outside of the church. Drawing from extensive personal experience, the author, Teena Stewart, leads the way to effective benevolence ministry while supplying the tools needed to avoid many potential pitfalls. Using real-life illustrations, Teena casts a compelling vision of what a ministry of compassion can mean not only to those being helped but also to those doing the helping.
