The Generous Church Project defines generosity as the attitude and act of being extravagantly selfless. Consider this, the opposite of being generous is being selfish. As followers of Jesus we are called to be selfless. Jesus came and loved, gave, served, and lived not just in a selfless manner, but in the most extravagantly selfless manner. Our goal is that disciples of Jesus
Christ would learn to love, give, serve, and live in a most extravagantly selfless manner, thereby being continuously conformed to the image of Jesus Christ himself. And when the Church learns to become generous they become more fully engaged, multiplying and serving at the center of healthy and vibrant communities.
The sermon outlines and Bible studies contained within this app are designed to help you teach your congregation what it means to live extravagantly selfless lives. Each sermon packet has been specifically written to teach one of the four characteristics of generosity; Loving, Giving, Serving, and Living.
It is our prayer that God will use the materials within this app as well as the gifts and abilities that He has given you, the local pastor, to help mold individuals more and more into the image of Jesus Christ Himself. He who so extravagantly selflessly loved us, gave all of Himself for us, leads us in such a humble and selfless manner, and teaches us how to live completely for Him.
"These sermons and Bible studies are wonderful. Our people are moving toward local sustainability because of these sermon packs.”
"The key to developing disciples within the local church is a good understanding of generosity and stewardship. I highly recommend the Generous Church Project app to pastors as great way of enveloping this teaching into all areas of discipleship.”
"Learning to teach effectively about generosity is imperative if we are to plant new churches. This teaching on generosity and Biblical stewardship has been very beneficial to the Santal Churches we work with here in India.”
"This teaching has made a tremendous impact within the Anglican Church of Kenya. Pastors who teach on generosity and stewardship see great growth within their congregations.”
