Session One: Should We? A Capital Campaign Round Table Discussion
Aired on Wednesday, April 20 | 1:30 - 2:30 pm ET
"Are campaigns even working anymore?" "Do people even do those anymore?" "What makes campaigns work so well?"
These are just a few of the questions many leaders ask as they contemplate if a capital campaign is right for their church.
Join Generis for a roundtable discussion all about capital campaigns. Together, we'll discover the key indicators signaling it's time for a campaign, understand how to engage in a generosity initiative that fits your church's DNA and embraces a culture of generosity, and a Q+A session to answer your specific questions.
So whether you're just thinking about a campaign or are ready to get started, this session will help you take the right step forward.
Session Two: Revisiting The Offering Moment
Aired on Wednesday, May 18 | 1:30 - 2:30 pm ET
The offering moment is your weekly opportunity to teach the biblical understanding of generosity and stewardship. However, for many churches, this moment often is left on autopilot and tends to fall flat in weekend services. In this session, we will explore how your church can revisit your offering moment strategy and create one that inspires greater generosity among your givers.
You will learn:
- The number one mistake being made by churches today
- How to make the offering less about money, and more about discipleship
- 4 types of offering introductions that will work for every church
- The most crucial aspect of creating an effective offering moment that over 90% of churches are NOT doing

Session Three: Generosity Storytelling
Aired on Wednesday, June 22 | 1:30 - 2:30 pm ET
We all want to tell more stories but somehow always have challenges finding them! Particularly on this topic of generosity, it becomes even more of a daunting task because people often don’t want to talk about giving or don’t know what to say. Join us for a practical and spiritual conversation on how to mine for stories and how to tell stories of givers in a way that is helpful and meaningful to those who will experience them as well as to those who will tell them. Special guest TJ Friesen of Rally Caps Media who is excellent at telling stories of generosity will be joining us for this important discussion as well.
Session Four: Teaching Biblically on Giving
Aired on Wednesday, July 20 | 1:30 - 2:30 pm ET
It's difficult to talk about money, particularly when you're starting a new church but also when you are leading a growing church with constant new believers coming in the doors. How do you have a bold, biblical perspective on money without scaring people away? How do you disciple people in this key area of faith when so many are in different places financially? This session will deal with some of the practical and biblical narratives of gospel-driven generosity and how we can better communicate this aspect of discipleship to our people and help them grow.
Session Five: NextGen Generosity Roundtable
Aired on Wednesday, August 31 | 1:30 - 2:30 pm ET
There is a common misconception among pastors and church leaders that younger givers - Millennials and Gen Z - do not give. The reality is, these young givers are a generous generation and want to develop their giving.
If you are struggling to inspire generosity among your young givers, this session is for you. During this round table discussion, we will dive into common misconceptions in the church, how to engage younger givers, and how you can truly connect with Millennials and Gen Z and take them deeper in their discipleship journey.
