In the Yeshua Institute’s latest video, A Giving Parish is a Growing Parish, the Institute’s CEO, Dr. Owen Phelps, shares the story of how a pastor’s vision of generosity helped build a new parish from the ground up.
From the start, the new parish’s young pastor insisted that despite the parish’s many needs, it should tithe its income for needs beyond the parish.
That notion wasn’t popular with many of the new parish’s members. But the pastor stuck to his principles and consistently donated five percent of the parish’s income to needs beyond the parish.
Since then the parish has not only built a beautiful church, parish center and rectory – but the community grew so much it had to build a second, larger church. Click here to hear Owen’s story.
