Why Give?

The most important question you can answer around giving is not how but why.

  • Why should I give?
  • Why should I give to your church?

Generosity is a journey, not an event. The journey begins with why. In his latest video blog, Dr. Scott McKenzie shares how to address the why question in your church. He offers some practical insights that will help you move from trying to meet or grow your budget to helping your church grow into a culture of generosity.Generosity is not a financial expectation. Rather, it’s a spiritual invitation to re-organize your life around Gospel living. It’s about what God wants for the people in your church, not from them. When we take the opportunity to unpack the why question, you’ll see people change their relationship with money. Instead of seeing money as a source of power, they’ll begin to see it as a blessing to be shared and invested in Kingdom things.

Note: All proceeds to Horizons Stewardship from the sale of the 28 day devotional A Generous Life are donated to UMCOR, a non-profit world relief agency. A Generous Life may be purchased from Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Abingdon Press or your favorite Christian bookstore.
