Money is always a delicate subject, especially in the church—no one wants to feel like they are seen as a human ATM—but it is a pastor's responsibility to help people understand how their money and material blessings relate to their faith and role in the church. Special fundraising projects, in particular, take on an added dimension of complexity as requests go above and beyond tithes.

This 25-page resource will help you avoid and respond to the biggest challenges in raising funds for your church or ministry, and will also give you fresh insights and creative ideas to spur people to generosity.
