One of the great challenges in the church is finding qualified and willing people to provide leadership to the stewardship and financial areas of congregational life. The first qualification is not being an account, nor is it being rich – it is being generous! There are a great many skills we teach an individual, but a person only becomes generous by choosing to do so. To be a leader in this arena, you have to believe that what your church does matters, that it should have the resources necessary to carry out its mission, and that you are willing to put your money where your mouth is!
