What if there was a clearinghouse for educating and supporting church leaders regarding building a culture of generosity? Generosity Labs is a project by Kenny Jahng providing educational resources and encouragement around digital giving through a new podcast.
Hearing from peer pastors that are a couple of steps ahead can help inspire and encourage you, and maybe kickstart more pastors to explore digital and online giving for their own community.
