Welcome to the Selah Generosity Pastor and Leaders' Kit. We have assembled together resources to help you encourage your congregation to press PAUSE and REFLECT on God’s presence and the connection of The United Methodist Church. This resource kit is designed to provide the opportunity to reflect on the spirit of generosity and the impact United Methodists are making in the lives of individuals around the world. These resources will help you approach the subject of giving and generosity with your congregation with an emotional and personal touch.

As followers of Jesus Christ, we strive to follow his example: healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and advocating for the poor and marginalized. Jesus also gave us an example of how to take care of our mind, body and spirit. He took long walks with friends, he immersed himself in Scripture and prayer, and when things got too hectic, he withdrew to a quiet place and cared for his soul. It is important to pause, ponder and give thanks on the many connectional ministries of the United Methodist Church. As a leader, we created this kit to allow you to teach, guide, and ultimately increase giving in a moment of “Selah.”
