10 Generous Churches Trying to Out Give God [Webinar Replay]

Is it possible to out give God?

We don’t believe so, but we’ve compiled 10 real-life stories of churches who may be accused of trying to do just that. These churches are giving back in extremely outrageous ways, and it’s beginning to impact the culture around them.

Here are a few snapshots:

  • 70,000 pounds of potatoes each year
  • $500 to each church member
  • A single act of generosity that launched a movement in churches across the country

These are just a handful of the stories we’ve collected. In this webinar replay, you’ll see videos, real life photos, dollar amounts, and results. Then, we’ll help you create your own outrageous generosity church campaign by first confronting the lies holding many pastors back, and then by sharing our curated list of practical resources.

Each of the three topics in the webinar is also covered in depth on our blog. See the bottom of the post for links. Also, here’s a page where you can learn more about Pushpay’s Digital Giving Tool which guarantees a 5 percent increase in church giving (which some of you were asking about on the webinar).
