That, in a nutshell, describes the problem churches are facing in their stewardship efforts, says Christopher. Unlike leading nonprofit agencies and institutions, we too often fail to convince potential givers that their gifts will have impact and significance. In this book, Christopher lays out the main reasons for this failure to capture the imagination of potential givers, including our frequent failure simply to ask.
Written with the needs of pastors and stewardship teams in mind, Not Your Parents Offering Plate provides immediate, practical guidance to all who seek to help Gods people be better stewards of their resources.
