The fact is, tithes and offerings (alone) are no longer enough to provide for the needs of the local church, enable pastors to pursue opportunities, or sustain long-term ministry impact. Bound to a rapidly fading financial model that depends on numeric growth, most pastors today are simply managing stagnant of declining budgets. To not only survive changing economic times but thrive financially in the future, pastors today must learn to leverage church assets and create multiple streams of income to effectively fund mission. In this session, Mark will break it down and encourage you to embrace the coming revolution in church economics.
