The following is an excerpt from our ebook: How To Disciple Financial Leaders:
Vision frames the future. Leadership sustains the future. Stewardship fuels the future. If you are not investing in the financial leaders of your church by casting crisp, clear and compelling vision, they are less likely to be fully bought in to your ministry. 2 Corinthians 9:7 says, “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
Casting a compelling vision and investing in the leadership development of your financial leaders takes them from a place of compulsory giving into passionate giving. Thriving churches have a distinct passion about them: they are passionate about the vision the Lord has placed on their hearts. A church that is passionate about the vision the Lord has given them is an unstoppable force. Jesus said that he will build his Church, and the gates of hell will not overcome it. When your church is fully bought into what Jesus has called you to, miraculous things begin to happen. When you invest in vision and leadership, the financial leaders will have no problem investing in your church.
If you are not investing in the leadership development of your church, your church cannot reach its full potential. The future of your church hinges on its ability to raise up leaders to champion the calling Jesus has placed on their hearts. Developing leaders exponentially increases the amount of ministry your church can do because you stop doing ministry for people and begin to do ministry with people.
