“The Disciple’s Giving Book” was birthed out of the desire to have a free book that pastors and leaders alike could use to teach and encourage God’s people to give generously. Each lesson has a basic definition of each topic, a Scripture reading, brief teaching with easy to understand points in an outline format, an overall summary of the lesson, practical applications for all to do, and lastly, a doctrinal confessional for repetition.

Below are different formats for the book:
