The Conference is a two-hour virtual educational meeting prepared for Church ministers (Pastors and their Associates) to receive training in how to use “The 8 Sensible Principles to Increase Tithing in Your Church” with their congregation, for optimizing the spiritual health and the financial vitality of their local church.
For many Church Ministers today, the downward trend of tithing is no news. Church members are financially giving less in tithing, which as a result is affecting the financial resources of many local churches. This general trend of less giving in tithing in local churches was reflected in a study conducted by Empty Tomb Inc.
The existing concerns for the downward trend of tithing is more compounded with the Covid pandemic. Besides the downward trend, the fact also remains that tithing is a sensitive subject for many pastors to touch on.
The Church Tithing Institute will have its maiden conference to teach Pastors & church leaders, the 8 Sensible Principles to Increase Tithing in the Church.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The Church Tithing Institute is a leading Church supporting organization dedicated to providing the educational solutions for efficient and effective practice of Church tithing in the local church. So that the local church can optimize its spiritual and financial vitality.
CTI is established to endow Church Ministers and their leadership with the theological, biblical, and curricular skill sets to create a God focused relational driven culture of Church tithing that would optimize the spiritual and financial vitality of their local churches.
CTI is big on the education that transforms the individual in being formed in Christ. The efficacy of the Church tithing curriculum is built with proven adult learning theories on how people learn and acquire new knowledge, and the dimensions of transformation that take place in their lives; with a total dependence on the power and influence of the Holy Spirit who is the arch agent in fostering the Christ-driven transformation in our lives.
CTI shares the responsibility with Church Ministers and their leadership in being entrenched in the theological and biblical bases of God’s modeling of Church tithing with Abraham, being able to defend the practice of Church tithing, and giving due diligence to the essential things that give integrity, and consistency to the fundamental principles that God benchmarked in Abraham, to serve as the sustaining underpinnings for the practice of tithing in the local church.
