Product Description

Engage your congregation in a practical conversation about stewardship that revolves around sharing God's abundance---rather than holding on fearfully. You'll discover the "culture shift" that comes from telling "giving" stories rather than pledging to a budget; and begin a transformative process that results in deeper faith, stronger ministries, and a vibrant church community.

Publisher's Description

CLIMB challenges the negative connotations associated with “stewardship” and invites congregations to completely change the conversation around this critically important topic.
Instead of talking about the needs of the church budget, CLIMB suggests a discovery of your congregation s compelling vision for ministry. Instead of selecting your stewardship leaders by default, CLIMB encourages the development of strong leadership through setting clear and challenging expectations.
CLIMB involves changing the entire culture of your congregation to one of gratitude, where conversations revolve around sharing God's abundance rather than holding on fearfully. CLIMB encourages the sharing of ministry stories rather than pledging to a budget. And, finally, CLIMB asserts that if you truly believe expressing generosity results in a deeper connection to God, you have no choice but to boldly ask others to become more generous givers.
