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.

Dan Cwynar5 Stars Out Of 5February 20, 2009Dan CwynarAlthough written for ministers, this book is exactly what I was looking for to make my stewardship ministry more effective. After completing a successful stewardship program in 2008, I was looking for ideas to make this years program even better. So, I ordered several books on stewardship, hoping to find inspiration.Not Your Parents Offering Plate is one of those rare books I could not put down. The chapter Reasons People Give is extremely insightful. The chapter The Top Ten Things I Would Do Now is full of suggestions for our next stewardship program.Recently, while updating my Pastor on some stewardship concerns, I mentioned that we should stop presenting line item budgets to the congregation, but switch to a missional budget format. This is one of the suggestions in the book. After explaining what I was talking about, my Pastor smiled and agreed. From here, I moved to other suggestions I had discovered in this book. Our meeting lasted much longer than scheduled.I made two sales at this meeting. First, I gained my Pastors support for all the changes to our stewardship program I will propose to the Church Council. Second, he asked for the name of this book so he could order a copy.
