"excel in this grace of giving" (2 Cor. 8:7)

Task Completed

Consulting leaders

Consult early with leaders of young people's ministries. They will have questions and need time to engage with as well as consider the needs of their young people. Share the vision for Giving in Grace and the reasons for the youth and children's materials. Make sure leaders are not excluded by the time they give to the young people.
It is all to easy to say that we need to talk money with kids and then not talk to the people who will do the talking! Give time to inform, inspire and invite children’s and youth ministry leaders; the paper Growing Up Generous will help to start thinking and discussion. Don't assume that they will get on board automatically. They will need to prepare and to plan and they will need to familiarise themselves with the Money Matters resources and perhaps also the all-age Exodus and Harvest resources.
