Tip of the Month-01

Early 2021 giving has been as consistent for most churches and organizations as last year. In examining the giving data of our clients, the primary variable in this giving pattern has been because of your top givers. While we celebrate and value givers of all levels and engagement, the math tends to show that your top percentage of givers provides a significant percentage of your budget. How can you take organic, natural steps over the next 90 days to fan the flames of engagement and giving?
 
We want to help you exceed your budget this year and avoid losing your current momentum. Download this resource bundle that outlines simple ways to engage major givers over the summer.

A strong and healthy staff culture is one of the key ingredients for a thriving culture of generosity in the church. Without a healthy staff, there is room for dysfunction, limited ministry impact, and ultimately creating a lid on generosity in your church. The past year has been challenging for your staff. There may be opportunities to address misalignments that can impact your fall launch.

Money and the Church. The two aren’t often talked about in open, transparent settings. And sometimes, when the two are talked about together, the conversation is fraught with tension, misunderstanding, and judgment. How about in your church?  Unfortunately, too many churches struggle with talking about giving. And if you're a leader who's struggling, you're not alone. This new blog outlines five areas you can begin addressing to help normalize the giving conversation and inspire your church to greater generosity toward your God-inspired vision.
