“Bill High has been a visionary for stewardship and giving for many years. He has always asked the hard questions and challenged each one of us to think beyond ourselves and the status quo. God has called us to align with His heart for extravagant generosity and I’m excited for the launch of the Signatry to provide an avenue to live out this alignment. Let us all continue to ask if there is more that can be done for His Kingdom, and when we find opportunities, be willing to step out boldly.”
