Generosity NEXT features plenary speakers who are thought leaders on cutting-edge topics related to faithful stewardship and generosity in the North American cultural landscape.
Receiving offerings has been an ongoing part of the church’s story, beginning with the earliest scripture texts. Spirited Generosity: Offering Vitality in the 21st Century will explore the history and theology of the offering, its spiritual significance, and how faith communities can continue to make congregational giving a vital practice in 21st-century culture.
Spirited Generosity will feature these four plenary sessions:
- Historical and theological review of the offering in Judeo/Christian culture
- The Offering as Worship: theological and biblical aspects of the offering as an act of worship, discipleship, and mission
- Cultural Influences on the Offering: technology, generational differences, and the place of church in society
- Best Practices for the Offering: making the offering a meaningful moment when faith communities gather
Generosity NEXT is provided by the Ecumenical Stewardship Center: As a Network for Growing Stewards, the Ecumenical Stewardship Center helps the church thrive as it learns to live generously.
