A Spirituality of Fundraising, by Henri J.M. Nouwen | John S. Mogabgab, Series Editor
"Fundraising is, first and foremost, a ministry," renowned author and teacher Henri Nouwen writes in the introduction. "It's a way of announcing our vision and inviting other people into our mission."
Nouwen approaches fundraising from a position of strength rather than weakness, seeing it as spiritual work. "Fundraising is precisely the opposite of begging," he points out.
Unlike most business/leadership books, A Spirituality of Fundraising, is brief and can easily be read in one sitting. Sections of this booklet include:
- Fundraising as Ministry
- Helping the Kingdom Come About
- Our Security Base
- People Who Are Rich
- A New Communion
- Prayer and Gratitude
- Your Kingdom Come
Nouwen's insights will shift your thinking about fundraising. You'll never feel as though you are begging for money but instead view your work as true ministry. A must read for leaders in churches, nonprofits, ministries, and businesses! Click here to purchase.
Kerry Robinson, Executive Director, National Leadership Roundtable on Church Management, shares that in his book, A Spirituality of Fundraising, "Henri Nouwen, with impeccable insight, conveys the transformative effect fundraising can have on organizations and people. Nouwen has given us a rare gift: a compelling understanding of development as ministry, where donors are subjects, not objects, and money follows mission."
The new edition of A Spirituality of Fundraising, the first book in the Henri Nouwen Spirituality Series (HNSS) is available from our bookstore.
