“I want to take this moment to thank you both for the wonderful webinars you have allowed Generis to offer to clergy online. I have participated in at least 5 of them and each one has given me new insights and tools to use in ministry that are especially helpful during our present circumstances due to the Covid-19 pandemic. ” – Rev. Larry Teasley

“I waited patiently for this day to arrive, and I was NOT disappointed. Right from the start, I found the information informative and useful. There was NO clock watching here. Every speaker was engaging, they kept my interest, and their delivery was exciting, drawing you into the conversation on how to live a life of generosity. I am VERY thankful to the U.M. Foundation of AWF for providing this event. YOU made MY DAY!”” – Rev. Warren

“One of the most tangible ways that God has worked at Foley United Methodist Church has been through the influence of Chris Stovall and Generis. Through our partnership, we have experienced a radical reversal of previous trends and find ourselves enjoying the best seasons of ministry this church has known in years.” – Dr. Nolan

“I appreciate the information shared by Dave to help us navigate the uncharted waters for our church in the next weeks and months. We will definitely need to develop budget scenarios so that we can be as prepared as possible and have no surprises.” – Unknown

“We’re going to use the ideas we learned immediately; quarterly giving statements with a letter. Also, we asked the staff to look for stories to share during the offering moments. Currently we have members share their testimony in our newsletter.” – Unknown

“I’m looking forward to implementing some of the ideas!” – Linda

“I attended the webinar in March (2019) and have already applied some of the suggestions offered in that session – and we have seen giving increase!” – Matt
