11 Steps to Increase Giving in Your Church … Starting this Weekend
Tuesday, June 6, 2017
12:30 p.m. Central Time
Scripture doesn’t shy away from conversations about money, but church leaders often do. Learn some simple and effective ways to create a culture of increasing generosity in your church, including suggestions for joyfully engaging givers at every age and stage of life. We’ll talk about transforming your weekly church offering into a time of celebration, coaching church leaders to effectively talk about stewardship, creative ways to thank your givers, why a major gifts strategy makes sense for churches, how to keep your offering numbers steady during the summer, and more.
We’ve had pastors ask for more discussion on the latest trends in congregational stewardship, and we listened. This is for you! If that’s not you, please share the webinar with any pastors and congregational officials, seminary students and official; and district/synod/national church leaders you know who could benefit. We want this to lead to rich discussion and beneficial ideas sharing. If you can’t attend live, you may still register for the webinar and receive a recording.
