Brian Stiller: Sowing seeds of generosity (S2:E4)

Mark PetersenPodcast3 Comments

Brian Stiller takes us on an epic journey through a lifetime of taking risks and living by faith in this interview for the Stronger Philanthropy Podcast.  He grew up in Saskatchewan where he learned early on that seeds must be cast into the soil and die before they would produce life.  In like manner, he states that philanthropy can also imitate agriculture.  Surrendering one’s assets in generosity enable the production of new life in our world.

Brian is the Global Ambassador for the World Evangelical Alliance, and President Emeritus of Tyndale University College & Seminary.  Under the WEA banner, he travels the world to encourage, train, and build up local churches and denominational leaders in the evangelical stream, as well as facilitates coalitions among broader faith-based entities.


In the process of giving, there’s a replenishing.  And that replenishing becomes the source of joy and the abundance of life.

–Dr. Brian C. Stiller

  1. “In my 60 years of preaching, teaching, writing and study, I believe that the principle of philanthropy is more core to the gospel and Creation than anything else I can imagine. Nothing happens without someone giving something away.”

    Inspiring and powerful teaching. Thank you, Brian!

    1. Yes Quentin… I thought that was a particularly great quote by Brian. We don’t often consider how critical philanthropy is to everything!
