Conference Topic: Contagious Generosity – What Generous Churches Know
“Evergreen” is an idea that captures both our approach and our dream for your ministry. It is how we accomplish our mission of accelerating generosity toward God-inspired vision.
The Evergreen approach was developed to meet the needs of today’s church and ministry organizations. For decades, fundraising counsel has focused on strategies driven by event-oriented, capital projects. These strategies are good but they are not complete. We believe that the essential and effective approach toward generous giving is one that is ever green.
We believe that it’s not about a campaign. It’s about a culture. A culture that gives out of abundance and sustains giving in times of drought. We see changed hearts toward a lifestyle of generosity, rather than a moment of “feel good” giving that may wither and fade.
“But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree
planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its
leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Developing a culture of generosity starts with realizing the three “on-ramps” or avenues of provision for your church or ministry
