Church Generosity Training for Pastors and Church Leaders

Important information about this course: This interactive online training has been designed for the senior pastor and a group of key lay leaders to go through together during regularly scheduled committee meetings. Each session should take 20-45 minutes depending on the number of people in the room and how much discussion takes place. The pastor and at least three lay leaders (or more) should be present for all of the online training sessions. In some churches, it may work out best for the pastor and a select group of at least three lay leaders to go through these sessions together before or after regularly scheduled meetings. This course will usually be completed over a six-month time period, but some leadership teams may choose to go through this more quickly and others may take additional months to complete because of holiday or summer schedules.ause of holiday or summer schedules.  NOTE: For those receiving a grant, the 40 Days of Generosity and Bless Your Pastor offering need to be scheduled and completed in 2018.
