What would happen if God's people released God's money to do God's work? Gold medallion winner and best-selling author George Barna has written this book to prepare church leaders--spiritually, emotionally, and strategically--for the sensitive task of raising money for the work of ministry. Barna dispels the anxiety, fear and misunderstanding surrounding fund-raising and stewardship with knowledge and wisdom gleaned from years of research into the who, how and why of givers and giving.

Review 1 for How To Increase Giving In Your Church
Date:July 13, 2010
The author gave great statistics and information to assist a pastor, the board and finance committee on how to approach the idea of giving, what to teach the congregation and implementation of giving. It stirred positive thoughts for me to use while serving as a senior pastor.

Review 2 for How To Increase Giving In Your Church
Barna again does an excellent job of taking research and statistics and interpreting them in such a way that church leaders benefit. The benefit received here however, is not a stewardship plan but stewardship principles. The wording of the title isn't indicative of the content of the book.If you want to learn more about what groups of people give to churches today, why they give, and to what causes they give, then this book will serve you well. If you're looking for a stewardship program to implement in your congregation however, you will be disappointed. This work is very good -- it just needs a different title.
