How to Disciple, Encourage, and Engage the Wealthy People in Your Church
(Generis Luncheon Seminar)

Jesus said it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter kingdom of God.

So how can you effectively disciple people who have significant financial resources in matters of generosity and stewardship? How can you engage their hearts and help them catch a vision for your church’s mission?

Join Generis at an ECCU-hosted lunch and learn from experts like Richard Watts and Gerald Farley.

Richard Watts

Family Business Office (FBO)
Founder and President

In his new book, Fables of Fortune: What Rich People Have That You Don’t Want, author and attorney Richard Watts pulls back the brocade curtain to reveal the precarious path of wanting more. As an advisor to the super rich, he reflects on the reality of wealth and the difficult and heartbreaking lesson: “The wealthiest person is not who has the most, but who needs the least."

Richard was admitted to the California State Bar to practice law in 1982 and is an alumnus of the Harvard Business School. FBO is a legal and consulting firm that manages the country’s wealthiest families and their family office enterprises. Richard’s families rely on him to oversee family operations and make decisions with them on a daily basis. Using his talent for creativity, Richard plans to continue writing books in the Fables of Fortune series.


Gerald Farley

Vice President

To Gerald, the way people handle money and possessions is the clearest indicator of who they are in Christ. As a gifted leader, administrator, and teacher, he brings a wealth of experience, heart, and passion to the task of helping believers embrace the full power of biblical stewardship.

A Generis consultant since 1996 and a church staff administrator for 20 years prior, Gerald is adept at providing diverse guidance and counsel. His skills include analyzing generosity in the church and providing practical solutions to help increase giving, leading in enhanced giving opportunities, and assisting with plans to enlist those with stored assets to include the church. Gerald’s calling lies in helping people grow in the grace of giving—both to meet their own spiritual needs and the ministry needs of the church.
