What is the Annual Celebration of Generosity

Play Video

The Celebration of Generosity is an experience that brings people from around the country together to consider what it means to be entrusted with wealth, experience the joy of generosity, and excel in the grace of giving.

These events are designed to help Christians view generosity from God's perspective. As believers blessed by God with both spiritual and material riches, you will hear biblical teaching and personal stories from givers who have experienced the joy of giving to Kingdom causes. You will have an opportunity to exchange ideas and concerns with your peers, as well as to consider how your giving will impact eternity.

No solicitation of any kind occurs at Generous Giving events. If you already have an eagerness or capacity for generosity, you will leave this conference affirmed in your spiritual calling as a giver and excited to continue on your journey.

"The reason that we come year after year is that we always leave inspired. There's no pressure to give to a specific organization, just encouragement to give hilariously and live life to the fullest. It's a contagious disease we are happy to contract every time we attend a Generous Giving event." — Martha and Tony
"Thanks! This was one of the best — if not the best — weekends like this I have ever attended. I am leaning into the Spirit’s leading in my life, in a large part because of hanging out with these good people." — Doug
"I'm seeing generosity as a gift from God and not an obligation." — Samantha
"Talking with others openly about God's heart for wealth and stewardship is freeing. This event has created new categories for me that have greatly impacted my journey with Christ." — Jonathan

Celebration of Generosity FAQ

  • Who should attend the annual Celebration of Generosity event?
    The audience primarily consists of affluent Christians (individuals and couples of all ages, sometimes accompanied by their pastors, hosts or advisors). Most are eager to learn from God's Word, reflect on their personal giving habits, and discuss them informally with their peers. This is a safe environment for those entrusted with much to dialogue openly around the topic of giving. It can be difficult for this dialogue to happen when there are professional ministry people in the room, who may eventually ask another guest for money (or be perceived as such), or when those who are struggling financially are present.
  • Can I attend as a Ministry Leader?
    Ministry leaders are encouraged to attend with their key donors; pastors are invited to attend with their key church members; and professional advisors are welcome to attend with their clients. Ministry leaders, pastors, and professional advisors are welcome to register when they have three giving units (an individual or couple count as one giving unit). No solicitation of any kind is permitted at Generous Giving events. Ministry leaders and advisors may not collect contact information from other conference participants nor may they distribute business cards or other materials for the purposes of solicitation.
  • What is the conference attire?
    Recommended dress for the general sessions and meals is business casual. Coats and ties are not required for the conference, yet we recommend that gentlemen wear a coat to dinner Friday evening.
