Does your church talk too much about money? Or do you avoid the subject of church giving entirely? It depends on who you ask.
Maybe you shy away from talking about church giving because you don’t want to seem ostentatious or greedy. Or you might feel a sense of pride that you never broach the subject of money. But according to Mark Brooks, Senior Pastor, stewardship coach, thought leader, consultant, and author, this is a mistake and it can be corrected without alienating your members.
Mark founded Giving365 with the goal of helping churches increase giving. In his new book, “The Forgotten Sermon: How to Preach Effectively on Giving,” he addresses the issue of talking about money from the pulpit and helps pastors and church leaders “overcome the perception that many people have about preaching on giving.”
Starting off with chapters like “The Preacher’s Least Favorite Topic” and “Making the Case for the Forgotten Sermon,” Mark goes on to include both series and standalone sermons to guide you along the way.
