Ben Stroup, a 2002 graduate in Religion, recently released a new book, Church Giving Matters, which has sold more than 6,000 copies within the first 10 weeks of its release. Fueled with information such as how to lead a church through tough and prosperous economic times, bridging the gap between how pastors are trained and what churches expect of them, as well as practical tools and effective leadership principles, Church Giving Matters is an effective and invaluable resource to help churches fund their God-inspired vision.
Stroup works with LifeWay Christian Resources to assist churches with stewardship and giving, helping them achieve fully funded budgets and long-term sustainable ministries. His work includes partnering with Southern Baptist denominational leadership at both the state and national levels. For additional information or to purchase his book, visit www.crossbooks.com.
