Product Description

Does your church have enough?

Many churches struggle financially every year just to get by, especially in these tough economic times. Christopher shows why some congregations are financially sound and why others perennially fail. Some churches practice the necessary habits that form the foundation of successful ministry, while others waste valuable resources and undermine opportunities. Through insight born out of years of experience, Clif Christopher can help you not only assess the financial condition of your church but also put it on the road to fiscal health and effectiveness.

Publisher's Description

Does your church have the necessary funds to do ministry?

In Dr. Clif Christopher's nearly forty years in ministry as a pastor and President of Horizons Stewardship Company, he has witnessed the financial stewardship practices of thousands of churches. A few have exceptional records in acquiring and managing the necessary funds for mission and ministry, but the vast majority struggle every year to get by.

In this important new work made even more relevant by our economic times, Christopher contrasts the traits of the most productive congregations with those who perennially fail to secure the funds to perform transformational ministry. Some churches practice the necessary financial habits that form the foundation of successful ministry, and others waste valuable resources and undermine ministry opportunities.

Through Christopher’s insight born out of years of experience and consultation, readers can assess the financial condition of their own churches.

 

Author Bio

Christopher founded the Horizons Stewardship Company in 1992 following a challenging career in pastoral ministry.  He serves as the company’s CEO to this day.  In his twenty years as a pastor, he led numerous major building and capital campaigns.  Since founding Horizons, he and his strategists have led consultations in over 2,000 churches, conferences, synods and diocese in all phases of building, finance, and church growth raising billions of dollars for ministry.

Christopher is a certified church growth consultant and has earned the coveted title CFRE (Certified Fund Raising Executive).  In 1995, he was given the National Circuit Rider Award by the United Methodist Church for outstanding leadership in developing vital congregations. He has personally worked in over 42 states and is a frequent speaker at stewardship seminars around the country.  He is the co-author of the book Holy Smoke, the author of Not Your Parents’ Offering Plate, Whose Offering Plate Is It?, Rich Church - Poor Church and The Church Money Manual

Dr. Bill Easum, noted consultant and author, said, "No one knows more about local church stewardship than Clif Christopher."  Mega church pastor, Adam Hamilton said, "When I have a stewardship question, I call Clif Christopher."  Foundation director, David Atkins said, "Clif is one of the most effective communicators in the field of church fundraising today."  Author and highly successful pastor, Mike Slaughter said, "Clif Christopher is one of the top authorities on church finance and stewardship in America."  Abingdon Press has described him as "The leading voice of finance and stewardship in the Christian Church." 
Christopher has been an ordained minister of the United Methodist Church since 1975, is a combat veteran of the Gulf War, and is married and living in Little Rock, Arkansas.
