Bruce Barkhauer teaches generosity for a living. A noted speaker, educator, consultant, and writer, Barkhauer brings creativity, energy, fresh, and sometimes humorous thought into conversations about stewardship as a practice of faith and spiritual discipline.
Barkhauer served as a parish pastor for 25 years before accepting a call to serve as the first Minister for Faith and Giving for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a traditional mainline denomination, headquartered in Indianapolis. He believes that caring for the earth so that it may flourish is a divinely instituted human vocation and that our very lives depend on successfully carrying out this prime-directive to manage our resources well. He is married to Laura, and they share three children and three grandchildren.
