The core of the Joyful Giving Program, now in its third printing, includes a Preface by the Rev. Canon J. Hugh Magers, a Foreword by Tom Gossen, and Diagnostic Tools from the Rev. William A. Yon. Congregational leaders will appreciate this resource of timeless teachings on Christian stewardship along with many practical applications of these teachings.

Through clear, hands-on instruction, this resource will help you to

  • teach your congregation the fundamentals of Christian stewardship
  • recruit good leaders
  • train and inspire your volunteers
  • delegate responsibility effectively
  • customize a commitment program that fits your needs
  • focus on the many ways to give to God – including gifts of money, time, and talent.

Content includes a discussion of Year-Round Stewardship programs and an outline of five popular annual commitment programs which each include a focused Education Training Event designed to nurture church members toward a joyful and faithful response in their financial commitment. Workbooks for each of the five pledge programs are sold separately.
