Ten things you can do today to increase giving at your church.

Church leaders struggle with issues related to financial giving every year, in every economic climate. Most do not want to preach about the topic, and some don’t even like to think about it. The topic of financial giving is, for many, a perennial headache and an energy drain. Many church leaders have not considered the single most important aspect of giving, however. Bounty explores the critical spiritual component of stewardship development, and in ten immediately do-able and transformative steps, clearly instructs pastors and laity how to lead congregations to grow in generosity. Laid out with sound rationale and the wisdom of real-church experience, Bounty equips leaders to shift their congregants’ hearts as well as their pocketbooks.
