The Solution to Overcoming Cash Flow Problems in Your Church

Many church members look at their pastor as the senior-most leader in their church. And rightly so. Outside of Jesus, you are the one responsible for leading your people to grow in their relationship with God. 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 on 52 Sundays per year.

No weather changes, cancellations, or holiday weekends are accounted for in your budget.

So when times get tight or a new ministry is at hand, it’s easy to run to one or two people in your church with significant financial means and make the “ask” again.

But what if you could ask less of those individuals, increase overall giving, and develop greater consistency in your cash flow?

The Solution is Online Giving

It doesn’t require a huge increase in attendance or a professional athlete joining your church to increase your giving and regulate your cash flow.

Instead, It requires that you create ways for your current people to give more regularly.

Why? Because these days a faithful church member only attends 2 weekends per month.

This has a major impact on giving. Because most people only give when they attend. And if they aren’t there for 2 weeks out of the month…well, you can do the math.

So if they attend only once or not at all, then how can they give if you don’t have an easy way for them to give? The solution is online giving.

At New Fire Giving, we provide a simple solution to increase online giving in your church.

Most people don’t carry cash or checks anymore.

In fact, I don’t even remember the last time I ordered a new checkbook.

Everyone uses a debit or credit card these days, and most people shop for things online. Your people are already used to spending their money online.

So the easiest way for you to increase giving in your church is by using an online giving solution that makes it easier for people to give regularly.

So even when they miss a Sunday or two (or 4), they can still give to your church online. Or better yet, they can set up recurring gifts so the money is deducted from their account automatically, whether they miss a Sunday or not!

That’s why we’ve developed a framework to help you implement the technology required to get it going AND make it easy to get your people on board with this change.
