Pastor Marcos Bomfim shares a wholistic approach to stewardship and introduces a new, powerful concept of generosity as missional entrepreneurs.
Born in a ministerial family and saved from death by successive miracles until his third year of life, Marcos Bomfim started his pastoral ministry in 1986 as a district pastor in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Since October 2015, he has been the General Conference Stewardship Ministries director, following his 16 years of work in the Stewardship and the Family Ministries departments at different institutional levels in the South-American Division. Currently a DMin candidate, his educational training includes a Bachelor in Theology, M.A. in Pastoral Theology, and a specialization in Family Therapy.
In this episode, Pastor Bomfim shares what the Bible has to say about stewardship. It is more than just giving X% of your income. Beyond that, he gives us practical and powerful reasons why we should change our paradigm and move towards a more systematic way of giving back to God. He calls that the "promise."
