This course focuses on two qualities that define true discipleship by asking two questions: are you serving and are you giving. We will take a look at several components that help generosity. These components include modeling, motivation, mechanism, mission, and management. With those components in mind, I'd like to offer some very simple yet very practical ideas for cultivating generosity and the people we are called to serve.
I am John V. Morgan, an Ordained Bishop in the Church of God and pastor of Restoration Church. As a Bible teacher, conference and crusade speaker, writer, and music recording artist, I combine multiple gifts and talents in a unique style to bring a message of help, encouragement, healing and restoration to those who are wounded and broken. In addition to providing leadership to this local congregation, I travel extensively to different nations of the world bringing a message of hope and grace, fulfilling his calling to make broken people whole.
Generosity is critically important to everyone, regardless of position. Stewardship is a key principle that advances the mission of the local church. The power of generosity it can transform the life of both the giver and receiver. As a pastor, there are a lot of areas that I look at in trying to evaluate whether or not the people under my care are growing and maturing as followers of Jesus. There are a lot of qualities that define true discipleship, but the two primary questions that help me in measuring spiritual vitality are these: are they serving, and are they giving? Those two areas, serving and giving, are good benchmarks that reveal the level of spiritual growth and the depth of commitment to Kingdom principles. For that idea in mind, I'd like to offer some very simple yet very practical ideas for cultivating generosity and the people I am called to serve.
