Thriving beyond tomorrow is about more than just re-opening today!

Re-opening the church matters...a lot!  What matters more is how you will reframe your unique expression
of church in an ever-changing reality for months to come.

Building a culture of generosity is not about short-term tactics that

First Time Generosity: A Three Step Plan to Reaching Brand New Givers in Your Church

The vast majority of your church members are not givers. Do you often wonder how you can change that? 

Here's the inconvenient truth about non-givers: They attend, they participate, and they may even serve. They just haven’t made a commitment to support your ministry financially. Is that a discipleship gap, a missed opportunity....or both?

Join Generis Principal Jim Sheppard and Michael Lukaszewski, Church Fuel Founder, for an honest conversation about First Time Generosity: A Three Step Plan to Reaching Brand New Givers in Your Church.

Together, they will share a three step plan to help you reach non-givers in your church and encourage them to take the first step on their journey of generosity.

You will learn how to:

  • Engage non-givers without using guilt or manipulation.
  • Help non-givers get started with generosity in the context of their discipleship journey.
  • Inspire all givers to see your church as a vehicle for community impact.
  • Segment your database so you can make data-informed decisions and tailor your messages.
Includes Live Q+A 
Hosted by:
Jim Sheppard, Generis, Principal + CEO 
Michael Lukaszewski, Church Fuel, Founder + CEO
