SponsorsBethel Seminary's Work with Purpose Initiative and Thrivent Financial

Event Description

This fast-paced online session is an abridged version of an interactive in-person workshop for church leaders by Thrivent Financial. The content comes from newly commissioned Barna Group research on how Christians from each generation--Elders, Boomers, Gen X, and Millennials--interpret and live out generosity. In about an hour, you'll gain a fresh perspective on how people of faith really feel about being generous and explore new ways to attract, engage, and disciple all generations.
