Changing the narrative from Stewardship to Generosity provided us with language and practical tools to run our annual appeal. Results far exceeded any stewardship drive in recent history. ~ Anonymous
Taking us step by step through the process and facilitating the "new" way to create a culture. The meetings every two weeks were quite a commitment yet they kept us on track and focused as a group and they challenged us in a way that we didn't need to challenge each other...it was a model and a guide and I would recommend it to the tried and true stewardship people and also to newbies as a way to be coached through a process. ~ Pr. Kari Reiquam, Holy Love Lutheran, Aurora, CO
From the perspective of the gospel, fundraising is not a response to crisis. Fundraising is, first and foremost, a form of ministry. It is a way of announcing our vision and inviting other people into our mission. Vision and mission are so central to the life of God’s people that without vision we perish and without mission we lose our way.
~ Henri Nouwen, A Spirituality of Fundraising
