As a leader, you have much to do. Not only are you responsible for the daily care for the congregation, you also deal with unexpected life moments that require your full energy and attention. With all of these leadership realities it can be hard to turn your focus to elevating the giving conversation in your church.
Taking the time to plan and strategize the best approach for a year-end giving campaign or project isn’t the most exciting thing in the world – and it’s not like you have ‘spare time.’
However, this is a much more important investment of time and energy than most people realize. Whether you fully understand the value it can have in supporting your ministry all year long or you’re not really sure where to start but have heard others talk about it, getting your approach right is critical.
Engaging the hearts of your donors will not only align them to the mission of your church, but it will foster their passion for giving while reaffirming their belief that giving to your church is an investment in ministry.
Telling your givers, “thank you” is so important in connecting them with your mission. Don’t miss this natural moment to invest into the spiritual life of your givers. It is worth the focus and the work!
