Giving and Stewardship in an Effective Church Kennon L. Callahan A Guide for Every Member

"Two things are true of congregations," writes Kennon Callahan. "Congregations never have enough money. Congregations have all the money they really need for God s mission." With these paradoxical statements, Callahan launches his exploration of Giving and Stewardship in an Effective Church.

The stronger the congregation s mission, visitation [in the community], worship, [significant relational] groupings, leadership, and [participatory] decision making, the stronger the giving." Giving, he says, increases in direct proportion to the strength of the mission. "When you grow the mission, the money will come—and it will be sufficient for the mission." This comprehensive and pragmatic guide to giving and stewardship examines the six sources of giving available to a congregation:
  • spontaneous giving

  • special planned giving
  • short term giving
  • annual giving

  • challenge
  • reasonability
  • commitment
