In this episode of the Generosity Podcast, Todd McMichen is joined by Jeff Crook, senior pastor of Christ Place Church in Flowery Branch, GA. During their conversation they discuss launching a strategic discipleship pathway for generosity by uniting clear vision language and the five types of givers.
“Everything we do is flowing out of our mission and our vision.”
“Over the years of ministry, I have been addicted to capital campaigns.”
“When we began to embrace a culture of generosity, it was like an evergreen tree.”
“For so long I would attach vision to building buildings.”
“We believe that God owns everything and we are looking for opportunities to be conduits of His blessings.”
“Generosity is more about what God wants for you than from you.”
“Generous living is increasingly representing God’s heart to the world.”
“Generous living is not an act we do, it is a way we live.”
