This course consists of five video lectures:
Session 1 = 31:26 (mm:ss)
Session 2 = 53:59 (mm:ss)
The first two elements of the curriculum provide a foundation for seeing stewardship as a whole life response to the generosity of God.
Session 3 = 56:02 (mm:ss)
In the third session, students will discover why the conversation about generosity is so vital to the success of our mission; and begin to examine the best practices that encourage the practice of generosity. Do you have a “live the vision” or a “pay the bills” mentality?
Session 4 = 48:50 (mm:ss)
The fourth portion of this learning seminar focuses on policy and further defines practical methods that help a congregation achieve its financial goals.
Session 5 = 44:09 (mm:ss)
In the final experience, students will learn how to build the capacity for their own generosity and how to teach this to others. The only reason the church has a conversation about money is to resource its mission and ministry.
