You are warmly invited to join us for the launch of Rod Wilson and Peter Harris’s new book, Keeping Faith in Fundraising.
Rod Wilson will be delivering a lecture, followed by a Q&A, book signings, and a reception featuring live jazz.
Keeping Faith in Fundraising reflects on the role of fundraising in Christian organizations, exploring ways in which Christians may raise funds with integrity. Both authors bring decades of experience and deep scriptural knowledge to bear on the issue, drawing particularly from 1 Corinthians 8 and 9.
Eugene Peterson said of the book, “Rod Wilson and Peter Harris are two well-trained and practiced companions on the journey of enabling the Christian community to carry on its ministry faithfully. Their Keeping Faith in Fundraising is both accurate in its emphasis and motivational in its focus. It draws our attention to the centrality of our common mission as brothers and sisters to both give and receive money in a way that reflects Jesus.”
