Six Ways to Show Appreciation for Your Donors

Posted by Joanna Gray on January 12, 2017

Fact: giving of any kind requires sacrifice on the part of your community.

When you choose to spend your money somewhere, you’re giving up the opportunity to spend it somewhere else. And when people in your congregation say “yes” to giving to your ministry, they’re subsequently saying “no” to using it somewhere else. That’s sacrifice.

The act of giving to your church means your people made the choice to give up something else in favor of supporting your ministry.

And that’s not something we as church leaders should ignore!

4 Ways to Develop Your Church's Social Media Presence

Posted by Joanna Gray on January 4, 2017

As church leaders, you know better than anyone that staying connected with your people is essential to the life and growth of your church. While it would be nice if you had the time to call every church member to check in weekly, take every visitor to coffee to introduce them, or contact everyone in your congregation personally to remind them of an upcoming event, we all know that’s just not going to happen.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way you could quickly and easily connect with people on a regular basis to start conversations, encourage them with truth, and keep them up to date on all that’s going on at your church?

We want to take a moment in this busy Christmas season to help you get some paperwork out of the way. This isn't a regular blog post where we tell you how to do the SEO things, improve your online giving platform, or make quick website improvements.
