This book is a personal account for ministers and church leaders about how to raise resources for local church ministry. It has strong theological roots showing how generous giving flows from biblical principles. However it is extremely practical, explaining how to ask for money for ongoing ministry, special projects and capital campaigns for buildings. The ideas in the book apply in big churches, small churches, city churches and country churches. If they are used wisely ministers and congregations will not only give generously but give joyfully.
