Funding Principles that Empower Ministry: Lessons drawn from EQUIP
Pastors do not enter the ministry because they like to ask for money, but most discover quickly that fundraising is essential if their ministry is going to succeed. In this book, Doug Carter shows how to teach givers to participate in ministry with their gifts and offerings. Using examples from EQUIP and from EQUIP partners who have successfully used these principles in their churches and ministries, Doug shows the reader how to build relationships into stewardship and then create partnerships for ministry.
In his foreword to Raising More Than Money, Dr. John C. Maxwell says, "Doug's vocation in the realm of development has focused more on teaching givers to reflect the giving nature of Christ than about raising money. I'm confident that if you embrace the principles that Doug shares, it will impact your life now and throughout eternity."
