  Stewardship resources from Generous Giving, a nonprofit ministry that seeks to encourage givers of all income levels - as well as ministry leaders, pastors and teachers and professional advisors - to experience the joy of giving and embrace a lifestyle of generosity, according to God's word and Christ's example. It was launched in 2000 by the Maclellan Foundation to stir a renewed, Spirit-led commitment to generosity among Christians-reminding rich and poor alike that "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35b). Generous Giving is privately funded, and does not solicit donations for themselves or for anyone else.
