Don't cry "uncle" yet—especially if you haven’t gone through a discernment process. Churches raise financial support and discipleship intensity at the same time when they dig into these five areas.
2020 has been one of the craziest years ever. Hasn't it?
If you're a local church pastor, you've had to navigate a long list of challenges this year that you had no way to anticipate. Now we're entering the final quarter of the year, when many churches typically receive a significant portion of their ministry funding. And in 2020, the need for continued funding of your mission may be greater than you've seen in a while.
Do you have a plan to maximize the generosity potential of your church in the next 3 months? If not, you need to get one quick! The good news for you is that there's a FREE resource to help you.
One of the best thinkers I know in the fundraising space is Kelly Kannwischer, CEO of the Future Church Company. I've known her for years and have seen her expertise in this area—and many others!—over and over.
I could brag on Kelly all day long, but for now I want to introduce you to her as the author of this free ebook: The Pastor's 2020 Giving Action Plan: How to Maximize End-of-Year Giving in Your Church.
This is fresh content she is just releasing for the first time through Pivvot, one of the Future Church Co. organizations. The ebook includes a step-by-step roadmap, laying out what you should be doing in each month from September through January to maximize giving without selling your soul.
Kelly will also be providing 3 free webinars that will go further in depth with this content in September, October, and November. You can register for any of those webinars here.
I know this year has been incredibly difficult. I hope this ebook and these webinars will bring you some added value as you continue to lead well.
