Established in 2007, the Resource Mobilization Working Group (RMWG) is a joint initiative between the Lausanne Movement and the World Evangelical Alliance to encourage generosity and stewardship amongst evangelical Christians. In June 2011 the RMWG leaders decided to develop the Global Generosity Network (GGN) as main RMWG operating function.
Generosity and stewardship should become part of the life-style of every follower of Jesus Christ. The aim of the RMWG is therefore to challenge the whole Church towards whole-life discipleship that includes radical generosity and wise stewardship. Such radical generosity will result in a dramatic increase in giving to Christian causes and especially to global mission where it is most needed.
After a number of consultations a North American Resource Mobilisation Working Group was established in 2009 with David Wills of the National Christian Foundation as chairperson. In December 2009 the first steps were taken to develop an International Resource Mobilisation Working Group that now consists of Christian leaders from 10 countries.
