FAITH STRETCHERS

PRIMARY MOTIVATION: SPIRITUAL GROWTH

As a Faith Stretcher, you see generosity as part of your faith journey. You stretch yourself to give because you believe God will be faithful and reward your faithfulness. You don’t necessarily expect the reward for your faithfulness to be monetary. Knowing you are growing spiritually through your generosity is enough incentive.

GENEROSITY RESEARCH FINDINGS

Financial – Faith Stretchers find money a difficult topic of conversation, but do give even when money is tight.

Serving – Faith Stretchers tend to volunteer less time than other profile types. They focus on financial and relational generosity.

Relational – Faith Stretchers tend to have a strong relational impact. They live out the B.L.E.S.S. practices more than other profile types and tend to have more personal involvement in helping people find their way back to God.

Shadow Side
The Faith Stretcher's shadow side might relate to "Busyness." Perhaps you've packed your life with so many other activities that you find it difficult to commit yourself to serve? What could you say "no" to in order to create space to serve and grow in generosity with your time?
