Lewis Center Offers Free Resource for Churches
To encourage the spiritual gift of giving, the Lewis Center for Church Leadership offers the free resource: Why Giving Matters and Clues for Improving It. Hosted by Lewis Center Director Lovett H. Weems, Jr., this eight-minute video provides an overview of the importance of giving and offers practical ways to improve it. The video is available online at: www.churchleadership.com/funding; it may also be downloaded.
In addition to the video, the Lewis Center offers many additional giving and funding resources. Of note is CGP, theCongregational Giving Profile, a DVD/CD resource which more accurately determines whether giving is on track to meet church budget. Also available are the free handouts 50 Ways to Encourage Faithful Giving and 50 Ways to Improve Your Annual Stewardship Campaign. These and more resources are available at www.churchleadership.com/funding.
This congregational giving information is offered as part of the Lewis Center’s Funding Your Congregation’s Vision program. The goal of this program is to provide tools and resources to help congregations develop secure and reliable funding to support ministry.
