Julie Bullock, CFRE

For many people in our churches, they fall into one of three camps. Some have been giving generously for years and have learned the discipline of living a generous life. Others have been hurt or 'burned' by the Church and thus are holding back and possibly giving modestly if at all. And still others, simply have not yet learned, heard, or experienced what God would have for them in this area of discipleship and are new to the topic. However, ALL of these types of people are the people God wants to speak to on the topic of giving. Gospel-centered generosity comes from an understanding of who Jesus is and what His life was truly about, and that understanding is never at a point of "arrival." It is constant, continuous, and transformational - daily. It is my joy and privilege to help equip pastors and church leaders to release this type of understanding and joyful commitment within their people so that each and every one of us can take our next steps in living the generous life set before us.
