Church planters feel this truth on a daily basis. If you are like me, you more frequently feel it on a nightly basis, as you lay in bed. You pray and plan, desperately massaging numbers to keep pressing the mission without losing your house! There is a lot you can do to inspire generosity in the...

In 2010, my family moved to Boston (one of the most expensive places to live in the U.S.) with a church planting team to plant Redemption Hill Church. Planting as a team raised a number of challenging financial questions for us—many of which we didn’t even ask until much later in our journey....

A few years ago in our church, our elders were working hard to prepare a budget to present to our members and just couldn’t make the numbers work. The reality was we felt strongly that we needed to increase some of our giving in the area of church planting and missions in a way that was going to...

Finding the right cattle on the right hills Church planting takes money. I get it. As a church planter in greater Seattle, I get it. You have the vision. You have the training. You have the prospectus. All you need now is the money. Where will the money come from? How will you fund these amazing...

Have you noticed that God does not settle for the status quo? There is no place in the Bible where He says “There, that’s good enough. You can take a break now.” Even nature, which He created, is constantly shifting, changing and moving in order to keep the balance He intended.

Southern Baptists are known for their generosity to missions and 2016 was no exception. I am happy to report that giving to this year’s Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® totaled $58,860,553—the second largest Annie offering ever...

In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul outlines the different roles we each play within the body of Christ. Each is important as the Church carries out the mission of God.

NAMB’s effort to help Southern Baptists plant more churches outside the South is starting to have an impact. In this video Kevin Ezell shares some of the results.

I understand that Southern Baptists are concerned about baptism numbers and at the North American Mission Board (NAMB) we are as well. That is why at NAMB we are doing everything we can to stir up enough dust to get pastors to see the need to motivate and educate their people on how to share...

Southern Baptists entrust the North American Mission Board (NAMB) with about $120 million each year to help our churches reach North America for Christ. That is a trust I guard carefully. NAMB, by ministry assignment, is to work with churches,...
