Fact… Your church needs the financial support of your people to keep going and growing. We all know that’s true, right? Great! Another fact… Digital giving is the best way to reach your people. We’ve said it before: the trend in giving is going digital. More and more people are giving their money online.

Confession: I’m a coffee lover. A major coffee lover. Recently, I’ve taken up the quest of trying to create the perfect latte. After lots of trial and error, I’ve perfected the taste, but the presentation is still a little lacking. You know those intricate and detailed pictures that talented baristas craft in the foam of a latte, like this…

These days, the world has gone digital, and so in turn should the way you communicate to your congregation. Gone are the days when a postcard or even a phone call was the best way to connect with your people. Today, email is the way to go. While so many churches have and use an updated email list to inform and connect with their people, many don’t realize that it also provides an opportunity to make an ask. Your email list actually represents one of the best opportunities your church has to take up an offering.
Guys, its me, Luke… and I’ve got a question for you:
Our goal at Clover is to do one thing: To make ministry easier for churches. And while most of the time that means helping create and manage beautiful, professional church websites online, it also means sharing a few ministry tips and tricks that we’ve learned from church leaders along the way.
Here at Clover, we are in the business of church websites. Our goal is to help you create a space that you can make completely "yours" and will leave visitors eager to take that next step and check out your church in person. One of the best ways to encourage them to do just that is by making a connection. People are more likely to take the step to engage with your church in person when you’ve taken the first step to engage with them. Easier said than done, right? You can’t connect with visitors to your website if you don’t know who they are! And you can’t keep up with regular attendees checking out your website if you don’t have their information on file.
When you want to find information about something, where do you look? The answer is obvious, right? I mean, everybody knows that the quickest and easiest way to find information about something is the Encyclopedia! I mean, what’s faster than going to the library, look it up in the card catalogue, find it using the Dewey Decimal System, flip through the pages to find the right spot, and then read all you can to get the information you need. …..Or you could just Google it.
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.
