To improve your church’s generosity for years to come, you must first look at the condition of your church’s giving culture. Doing an internal audit of your church giving is essential in moving forward.

Many churches need guidance in this step. This is why we’ve made a Pulse Report outline that gives you a clear, 360-degree view of how your church is currently receiving and managing funds. Take the confusion, stress, and scarcity out of your church giving methods with the data you’ll receive in this report.
