In this new economy, churches seem to be feeling the sting of people losing their jobs. I'm hearing about churches cutting staff positions, cutting salaries, and cutting ministries. I'm thankful that in this new economic reality, we've seen a 31% increase in giving in 2009!
I believe the key to creating a culture of generosity in your church is to teach new believers that giving is basic Christianity. That's why we teach new believers about giving in our new believers' class and we encourage them to take the Tithe Challenge and see God's faithfulness in giving.
Generous people create a generous culture. And they become generous when they experience God's faithfulness in providing for them.
To learn more about how to successfully implement a tithe challenge that inspires new giving, check our resource called "The Tithe Challenge".
