The Global Generosity Network (GGN) is a joint initiative between the Lausanne Movement and the World Evangelical Alliance to encourage evangelical Christians to better stewards of their resources, live more generously and give more of their income to Kingdom causes where it is most needed.
The GGN challenges the global Church towards whole-life discipleship that includes radical generosity and wise stewardship. The GGN believes that such generosity will result in a dramatic increase in giving to Christian causes and especially to global mission where it is most needed.
- Promotes an integrated approach towards Biblical generosity and stewardship, church life, mission awareness and Christian giving
