Climb Higher challenges the negative connotations associated with stewardship and invites congregations to completely change the conversation around this critically important topic. Instead of talking about the needs of the church budget, Climb Higher suggests a discovery of your congregation's compelling vision for ministry. Instead of selecting your stewardship leaders by default, CLIMB encourages the development of strong leadership through setting clear and challenging expectations. Climb Higher involves changing the entire culture of your congregation to one of gratitude, where conversations revolve around sharing God's abundance rather than holding on fearfully. Climb Higher encourages the sharing of ministry stories rather than pledging to a budget. And, finally, Climb Higher asserts that if you truly believe expressing generosity results in a deeper connection to God, you have no choice but to boldly ask others to become more generous givers.
