The best way to begin building a thriving culture of generosity is to understand your church's current state of generosity and stewardship.
The Generosity Pulse Report offers a snapshot of your culture of generosity's health. By assessing the long-term health of your church’s giving and providing clarity of your current finances, the Generosity Pulse Report eliminates the guess work and offers your team confidence and understanding of your financial reality.
Let’s be honest; there are times when one-on-one guidance, encouragement and accountability brings out the best in us and accelerates our ability to chase down those big, audacious dreams. The Generis Coaching experience is designed to align with your greatest needs and is delivered over a period of time that makes the most sense for you.
No matter the size of your God-inspired dreams, it can be daunting to think about chasing down the necessary resources. The truth is that while vision almost always exceeds current realities, the means to support your vision is within your grasp.
With Generis, you’re not alone. Our customized Campaign approach will help you assess, rethink and reframe your current reality, allowing you to reach your specific goals while also establishing a foundation for increased generosity overall.
Ministry is more fun when you don’t do it alone! A Collective is a virtual peer-to-peer experience where you will journey through a specific set of ideas or challenges for a period of 3-6 weeks. It’s a great way to break through those occasional logjams. And, if you’re not quite sure you’re ready for one-on-one coaching, this is a great way to test the waters.
There are seasons in every church where a team needs to go heads down and implement a new strategy or solve a pressing problem. In a Ministry Strategy engagement, one or more of our leaders will help you uncover the right solutions for the season you’re in. They will also walk alongside to help you execute with greater speed and effectiveness. Journeys like these are highly tailored to your unique church mission, culture and people.
