By: Samantha Decker
February 13th, 2018

Money. It’s the one part of ministry that most of us don’t want to deal with, think about, or mention. It’s tricky, it’s awkward, it’s painful… but it’s also necessary. No matter how much we may want to ignore it, the truth is this: Funds are vital to the operation of your ministry.

Moving Visitors to Members: 5 Tips for Church Attendance

By: Samantha Decker
January 30th, 2018

One of the biggest challenges church leaders face today is how to engage their people long term. It’s much easier to draw someone in for a one time event or short series; it’s so much more difficult, however, to keep them actively engaged and attending your church for the duration. It’s the question that plagues so many of us: How do we move our people from simply being visitors to full-time attendees?

[Free Resource] Switching to Clover Give

By: Samantha Decker
January 11th, 2018

So you’ve decided to make the switch to online giving for your church? Great! In the digital age,  there’s no better way to make giving easy and accessible to your people than to take it online. But just as with any change in operations at your church, some people in your congregation will jump right in while others will be somewhat hesitant or skeptical. Maybe you have some members who signed up to give online, but aren’t actually doing it yet. Or maybe you have a number of regular tithers who haven’t taken the step to submit their information online. Or maybe you just have a large percentage of your congregation who haven’t signed up online at all. No matter your situation, your church depends on the gifts and tithes of its people so it’s important that you get all of your congregation on board with online giving. And we’ve created this resource to help you do just that! Rather than wonder how to communicate with your people about the switch—what to say and how to say it—we’ve created sample scripts designed to help you as a church leader communicate clearly and efficiently to your people about how they can make the switch to online giving.

Make the Most of Your Ministry

By: Samantha Decker
January 2nd, 2018

A job in ministry is a job of the lifetime. It’s a calling. It’s a privilege. It’s an honor. And it’s also one of the hardest jobs in the world. If you’re a ministry leader or pastor, then you don’t need us to tell you that. You’re living it out every single day. And some of those days are the amazing, fulfilling, God inspired days where you go home and think, “Wow, I can’t believe I get to do this for a living.” And others of those days are the difficult, tiring, challenging days where you go home and think, “Wow, I don’t know if I can keep doing this for a living.”
