About this title

Synopsis:

Stewardship programs rise or fall on their ability to do two things: first, provide church leaders easy-to-grasp yet comprehensive help in planning and implementing the program; and second, connect stewardship to the spiritual lives of all the members.

Plenty of programs have good ideas, yet they fail to provide leaders with suggested sermons and orders of worship, e-mail messages, letters, newsletter announcements, marketing messages, and other detailed, practical help. Many programs talk about the role of giving in the spiritual life, but they do not involve church members in thinking and praying about their financial discipleship on a day-to-day basis.

Created by Michael Reeves and Jennifer Tyler, Extravagant Generosity is built on Bishop Robert Schnase’s groundbreaking book Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations. Extravagant Generosity succeeds where other programs fail.

The Program Leader Guide with CD-Rom is a guidebook for leaders that covers all aspects of the campaign, from detailed plans for each of the four Sunday services to marketing materials like flyers and postcards to e-mail messages and letters designed to be sent to specific groups within the congregation–all available on the enclosed CD-ROM.

Additonal components to the campaign include: an overview timeline, the devotional book Practicing Extravagant Generosity, a small group leader's guide, and a DVD.

A kit is available featuring all of the components including the Program Leader Guide.
