Church Tithing: A Handbook for Pastors prepares church ministers with the foundational concepts of church tithing, including the status and the significance of Melchizedek and Abraham in God’s program for the church, the historical trends of church tithing, the theological and biblical bases for church tithing; and the core principles of church tithing (the biblical assumption of giving, the rubrics of God for church tithing, the Christian persuasions for church tithing, the faith and the moral principles of church tithing). The foundational concepts and the core principles of church tithing give church ministers two things: (i) strong defense or the apologetics for the practice of church tithing in the local church (ii) the fundamental skill sets for the education and the practice of church tithing, for optimizing the spiritual health and the financial vitality of their churches.
In offering a curricular approach for creating a God-focused-relational driven culture of church tithing, the handbook introduces church ministers to the Teaching, Communication, and the Practice (The TCP) of Church Tithing Program Kit. The TCP of Church Tithing Program Kit offers church ministers a combined teaching outlines and notes, communication programmed messages (tithing tips), and a practicum guide to engage in a robust comprehensive pedagogy and practice of church tithing to achieve with their congregation the spiritual and the sacred nature of church tithing that God instituted with the tithing of Abraham, with the goal of optimizing the spiritual health and the financial vitality of their churches.
Church Tithing: A Handbook for Pastors is the primary textbook created for the Church Tithing Institute’s Certificate in Church Tithing, an Online Course designed to train church ministers to serve as Church Tithing Specialists in the local church.
The TCP of Church Tithing: A Program Kit for Pastors is a pedagogy and practice of Church tithing, for creating a God-focused-relationship-driven culture of church tithing ultimately aimed at optimizing the spiritual health and the financial vitality of the local church.
Essentially, the TCP of Church Tithing Program Kit is built on the Core Principles of the church tithing that God benchmarked with Abraham with his tithing in Genesis 14. These fundamental core principles of church tithing include the five Christian persuasions for church tithing, the rubrics of God for church tithing, the biblical assumption of giving, the faith and moral principles of church tithing discussed in my book, Church Tithing: A Handbook for Pastors.
