Giving Up: How Giving to God Renews Hearts, Changes Minds, and Empowers Ministry"
In an age when many Christian denominations are shrinking and the demographics of the churchgoing public seem to get more dire by the day, pastor and author David Roseberry reveals the two-thousand-year-old secret weapon that conquered the first-century world: generosity. Citing the principal "meme" of the earliest Christians--"It is more blessed to give than to receive"--Roseberry demonstrates the power of unselfish giving to propel the message of Christ throughout a culture obsessed with "selfie theology."

Giving Up: How Giving to God Renews Hearts, Changes Minds, and Empowers Ministry offers a fresh, thoroughly biblical, deeply theological alternative to the latest theories of discipleship and church growth. As Roseberry explains, "The Body of Christ is at its best and most powerful when it is at its most giving." If we want to win the world, we have to learn how to give up.
John Graves Show Page
John Graves
President - Vision America
John Graves became the president of Vision America in January 2017. Prior to assuming leadership of Vision America, John served as a board member and in various roles alongside its founder, Dr. Rick Scarborough, mobilizing and encouraging pastors and Christians across the country to be voices of truth to our nation. For over 30 years, John has served pastors in local churches and parachurch organizations after becoming a Christ-follower in 1986 during his sophomore year in college.
John is bi-vocational, having been ordained a pastor by Pastor Jack Hayford, and he serves local church pastors. He also owns a small business with his close friend and partner. His business background led him to applying business principles, empirical evidence, and measured return on investment to all efforts to reach pastors and people of faith. He created heat maps of both churches and social conservatives in each state that led to each dollar being strategically stewarded for maximum impact.

Once “anti-political,” John felt compelled to become involved in the aftermath of the attack on our nation on September 11, 2001. He soon ran for U.S. Congress in Texas, and the lessons learned from that process created many of the cutting-edge ideas used by Vision America to reach people of faith.

John received his B.B.A. in accounting at the University of Texas at Tyler in 1990 and won statewide awards for advocacy. He received his law degree at Texas Tech University School of Law in 1993 and was selected to the National Order of Barristers. John currently serves on the board of Jack Hayford Ministries and King’s Ransom Foundation. He and his wife, Nicole, have five children, and actively serve in their local church.
