Should churches invite business owners into the pulpit?
1. It’s good for someone to learn from their peers- they hear it differently than if the pastor teaches on it. The devil works overtime to convince people that all the church wants from them is their money and I believe most pastors are genuinely trying to encourage people to give because they know the joy that comes from living a generous life.
2. It’s good for someone who is gifted in giving to talk about giving.
3. It creates another way to have generosity discussed at the church beyond the talk of the pastor. Creates a format for regularly highlighting the generous life at the church. Creates an opportunity for testimonies about how giving produces fruit in the church.
