Staff Giving In Your Church
Staff Giving Should Be Just As Important As Your Congregation Giving…
At least that’s what Dr. David McKinley of Warren Baptist Church says.
Last time we spoke with Dr. McKinley it was about a pivotal decision he made when his expectations about his church’s capital campaign didn’t quite pan out. We caught back up with him to learn another way he sets the tone for giving in his church.
“We have to keep teaching it clearly and deliberately and we have to keep lifting the level of accountability,” said Dr. McKinley. “Certainly in our church if anyone is going to be in leadership they have to have a credible giving pattern.”
