Today we want to be encouraged and enlighten by listening in to a special interview. Jim Sheppard is CEO & Principal of Generis, a consulting firm passionate about helping churches inspire and cultivate generosity through giving development, coaching, and strategy.After college, Jim passed the CPA exam and pursued a career as a financial executive. Though he grew up in the church, Jim was not a believer until he was 28. That part of his life intersected with his business life in 1991 when he thought he might be called to the pastorate. This came at a time when he was at a very high level in a major financial services company. After an intense spiritual period in his life, Jim realized that was not where God was calling him. Seven months later through a corporate buyout and a series of providentially inspired events, Jim moved from the corporate world to giving development for churches and ministry organizations.Jim is a student of generosity and is passionate about spreading it throughout the Church. For the last 27+ years, he has devoted his life to coaching pastors especially in navigating the resource limitations that restrict their ministry potential. Jim understands the financial challenges that churches face today; annual giving, debt, capital projects, and planned giving. He is a positive force in bridging these needs with the power of spiritually motivated stewardship. Cumulatively, Jim has partnered with his clients to raise over $1.7 billion for local church ministry. Jim is a frequent writer and speaker on generosity and ministry funding. He is co-author of Contagious Generosity: Creating A Culture Of Giving In Your Church.Jim and his wife, Nancy, live in the Atlanta, GA area and they have two married daughters. He is actively involved in his church where he serves as an elder and provides guidance to the Generosity Ministry Team"This is HIS story Podcast" focuses on ministry backstories of a people God is using for his Kingdom work and those pouring out God’s grace to hurting people around the globe.

Today's episode is pulled from a Webinar created in 2021 that is SO relevant and needed for Non-Profit Executive Directors and even Executive Pastors: The Section of the Webinar was called "Your Reports are Lying to you!"It helps eliminate passing data up from those below to the board of directors and having important information ignored. Selling a report that was built to show success not necessarily facts. Stop having needless "Vanity Reporting" laid on your desk and wasting valuable time finding the information you really want.In a day when data is everywhere... learn how to find... or better yet.. ask for the INFORMATION you need to find if your web efforts are bringing in RIO.We discuss how to measure online projects and learn to make reporting decisions BEFORE the project starts.Leaders at Christian organizations and churches wear many hats and let's face it, they all don't fit perfectly.

Shannon McGraw is a woman in love with God and excited about her faith. But it wasn’t always that way. She was only 3 years old when the abuse began by a family member. While still a teen, her boyfriend was tragically killed in an auto accident, and she began to question a God who would claim a young man with so much life yet to be lived. At the fragile age of seventeen, she was raped and she began to distrust a God who would allow such a thing. Again, as a freshman in college, she was raped a second time, and she began to earnestly put as much distance between herself and God as she possibly could.It has been said that the best thing about hitting bottom is that, when we do, we have no place else to go but up. Such was the case with mcGraw. Growing up with such evil it is no wonder she struggled with low self-esteem.  At the age of 27, having run from God as far as she could go, she found herself at the bottom of a life that was no longer tolerable. Having no place to go but up, she looked to Heaven. And there was God, surrounding her with His peace.It was the beginning of a love story that has grown more beautiful with each passing day.Shortly after her love affair with God began in earnest, Shannon felt a distinct calling to begin teaching the teens at her local church. Not only did this give her an opportunity to share her own struggles as a teen and tell others how God changed her personal tragedy into triumph, but it also allowed her to look beyond the traditions to more deeply explore the intricacies of her faith.Interviewer:Todd TurnerCreativeDigitalGuide.comI'm Todd Turner, Creative Digital Guide.
