Growth in Giving
Guests: David Cosel, Erica Pridey
You know it's right to give to kingdom work; in fact, you probably feel pretty good when you do. But there are a lot of fears around consistent giving, not to mention a few questions and debates. Hear our guests put their giving gripes, growing pains and joys on the table as we deconstruct what it means to cheerfully and consistently give.
Guests: Jeff Anderson
Have you ever been handed a plastic donut? Jeff Anderson has, and it prompted him to reevaluate the way he views money, his giving practices, and even his attitude toward God himself. Jeff's book Plastic Donuts is a no-holds-barred treatise on what God requires of us as stewards, and how this translates practically into our willingness (or not) to part with what we have.
Where Does It Go?
Guests: Don Roberts
Ever wonder how churches spend money, especially when it comes to the "boring stuff" like utilities, salaries and building projects? How much of a church's budget goes to staying afloat? How are salaries determined? Administration pastor Don Roberts tackles this week's question.
