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.
Dr. McKenzie passionately believes generosity is ultimately a question of faith development and discipleship. He is a Sr. Vice President and Partner with Horizons Stewardship As a national workshop leader and conference speaker, he teaches generosity as "grounded in gratitude, revealed in prayer and lived in faith." He holds degrees from Messiah College and United Theological Seminary. His Ph.D. is in spiritual formation from Duquesne University. He lives in York, Pennsylvania. Scott is the co-author of Climb Higher: Reaching New Heights in Giving and Discipleship and Bounty: Ten Ways to Increase Giving at Your Church. Scott is the author of Generosity Rising: Lead a Stewardship Revolution in Your Church. He is co-author of the soon to be released book, Generosity Challenge.
