Ep. 34: A Conversation with “America’s Giving Guy” Brian Kluth

On today’s MinistryWatch Extra episode, I talk with a man who is fueling a movement of generosity in this country, Brian Kluth.

Brian has been called “America’s Giving Guy” because of his work to help Christians become more generous.  As you will hear him say later in the program, people aren’t born generous, and even when they are born again, that doesn’t automatically make them generous.  Generosity is learned.  Generosity grows as we grow as a Christian.  Brian Kluth’s books and devotionals on generous giving have sold more than a million copies and have been translated into more than 40 languages and used in more than 100 countries.

For the past four years, Brian has been working specifically to get the church to be more generous with its pastor, and he has been spearheading a movement called “Bless Your Pastor” that hopes to reduce pastor burnout, increase job satisfaction on the part of pastors, and create healthy pastors and their families, as well as healthy churches.
