Lecture BB-01 - "Creating a Culture of Generosity" by Bruce Barkhauer
by Bill Anderton

The word “stewardship” means many things to different people. In many churches, it is a topic only raised for a few weeks only once a year at budget time. However, stewardship should be understood as a spiritual discipline that informs all aspects of faithful living.

In this lecture, we will explore the biblical and theological understandings that define stewardship as a spiritual discipline. We will learn specific tools to help your church grow in generosity and how to develop year-round programming that keeps a holistic view of stewardship as a part of your congregational life. Discover methods that make conversations around money more effective. This course will provide a more complete grasp of God’s people can live in response to Divine generosity. Discover the joy of giving and processes for building the capacity for greater expressions of generosity among the people in your congregation.

This is a five-session video-only lecture that provides excellent training for stewardship teams and clergy. The lecture also makes a great small-group study.

The registration fee for the lecture is just $29.95.
