You Have What It Takes To Lead Your Church To Give

You Have What It Takes To Lead Your Church To Give

Many church members look at their pastor as the senior most leader in their church. And with that comes the responsibility to lead your church giving every Sunday and beyond. But the reality is this… Almost every church struggles with money. Cash flow is inconsistent and unpredictable. And the weekly budget requirements are created based…

How To Create An Offering Talk For Your Next Sermon

How To Create An Offering Talk For Your Next Sermon

Each week you get 2-3 minutes for your offering talk, when you can speak directly to your givers. This precious time allows you to cast vision and communicate with those who fund the mission of the church. I’ve heard pastors say everything from “You’re not generous enough” to “Well, why don’t you just give?” As…

How To Talk About Giving In Church This Weekend

How To Talk About Giving In Church This Weekend

When it’s time for the giving talk during service it can be awkward, because the truth is, most people don’t know how to do it well. No one has modeled it for them. They haven’t seen many good examples of it. Maybe their parents were incredibly frugal or burdened by debt. Or maybe they grew…

Do You Struggle To Engage Givers At Your Church?

Do You Struggle To Engage Givers At Your Church?

Most church leaders think giving is a one-time transaction during the weekly offering, they don’t think afterwards about how to engage givers. Maybe there’s a mention of something going on in the church, and then a short prayer. And that’s where it ends. There’s no follow up, engagement or next steps. Nothing. Your church probably…

3 Painful Reasons Church Generosity Isn’t More

3 Painful Reasons Church Generosity Isn’t More

Every church depends on the generosity of its members for financial and volunteer support. Church generosity isn’t always top of mind. And for churches, there are often painful reasons why they aren’t giving more than they receive. There’s an old anecdote about a man who was trying to understand how big God is so he…

Church Branding: Communicating Your Message

Church Branding: Communicating Your Message

An Interview with Cody Bridenbaugh, Founder of Made By Harvest Church branding is somewhat of a new idea. Most people tend to think of branding as a “stuffy, corporate” thing says our guest Cody Bridenbaugh, founder of Made By Harvest. Cody offers a different perspective. While many people may get the wrong idea about what branding is, Cody says that it’s simply helping to bring continuity to your message and how people perceive and understand your church. Cody links a conversation a church member may have with someone about visiting their church, the brochure they may hand out to give them more information and the logos, setting, etc. that person experiences when they get there. If there…

Staff Giving In Your Church

Staff Giving In Your Church

Staff Giving Should Be Just As Important As Your Congregation Giving… At least that’s what Dr. David McKinley of Warren Baptist Church says. Last time we spoke with Dr. McKinley it was about a pivotal decision he made when his expectations about his church’s capital campaign didn’t quite pan out. We caught back up with…

The Nearly Costly Church Mistake

The Nearly Costly Church Mistake

Starting a church campaign is not something many pastor’s jump up and down to start.  In fact, they do what they can to avoid them until they know it’s the right time to present it to the congregation. In a church it’s a huge undertaking, not only for the staff and pastor but also for…

Overcoming Common Church Hardships Pastors Face

Overcoming Common Church Hardships Pastors Face

Church hardships will come and go for pastors.  But it’s how you overcome them that can either help you carry on, or deplete you of your energy. “Monday you’re either living off the high off how great the weekend was…or you feel suicidal.” Pastor Wesley Weatherford’s words are blunt, but I’m willing to bet they…

The Sunday Giving Sermon That Changed Everything

The Sunday Giving Sermon That Changed Everything

If you’re like most pastors, your favorite sermon isn’t a giving sermon. Far from it. Pastor Jason Mitchem is no different. In fact, he reserved giving sermons for weekday events.
