Product Description

What would happen if God's people released God's money to do God's work? Gold medallion winner and best-selling author George Barna has written this book to prepare church leaders--spiritually, emotionally, and strategically--for the sensitive task of raising money for the work of ministry. Barna dispels the anxiety, fear and misunderstanding surrounding fund-raising and stewardship with knowledge and wisdom gleaned from years of research into the who, how and why of givers and giving.

Publisher's Description

One of the most difficult tasks facing any church leader is the issue of raising funds. It's not that we don't realize that tithing and giving are biblical issues: God's Word is full of strong statements about the stewardship of money. But how does a pastor convey God's heart for stewardship? Literally, what's the best way to raise the money your church needs to survive? Obviously, God is the one who builds the church-He is the ultimate provider. But what's the best process of shepherding the funds He has for your church? This step-by-step guide will give you tools you need to raise funds in your church-scripturally and successfully-without compromising biblical integrity. After all, it's God's church and His money-but our responsibility to manage it.

    The author gave great statistics and information to assist a pastor, the board and finance committee on how to approach the idea of giving, what to teach the congregation and implementation of giving. It stirred positive thoughts for me to use while serving as a senior pastor.

    Barna again does an excellent job of taking research and statistics and interpreting them in such a way that church leaders benefit. The benefit received here however, is not a stewardship plan but stewardship principles. The wording of the title isn't indicative of the content of the book.If you want to learn more about what groups of people give to churches today, why they give, and to what causes they give, then this book will serve you well. If you're looking for a stewardship program to implement in your congregation however, you will be disappointed. This work is very good -- it just needs a different title.
