Jesus said it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God. 

So how can you effectively disciple people who have significant financial resources in matters of generosity and stewardship? How can you engage their hearts and help them catch a vision for your church’s mission? 

ECCU is hosting a Generis luncheon seminar, How to Disciple, Encourage, and Engage the Wealthy People in Your Church, on Thursday, October 18 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Those who attend will learn from experts like Richard Watts, author of Fables of Fortune: What Rich People Have That You Don’t Want, and Generis Vice President Gerald Farley. They will discuss: 

  • Who the wealthy are in your congregation.
  • Why they often stay hidden.
  • What they need that they don’t already have.
  • How to encourage wealthy people to invest more of their financial resources in ministry. 

ECCU will host this free event for senior pastors and executive staff, which includes lunch, at its headquarters in Brea, California. To register, contact Sheri Kohlmann at 714.420.5092 or
