Make It Easy: Four Steps To Simplify Online Giving At Your Church

By: Samantha Decker
September 26th, 2017

Have you ever read one of those how-to books? You know the ones we’re talking about—the kind designed to teach even the biggest dummy how to be an expert in the subject they choose. Now I don’t know about you, but the times we’ve thumbed through books like these—books created to take something complicated and make it easy—we end up more confused than when we started! And the worst ones of all? Books on finance and fundraising! Now I may just be simpleton, but I always seem to have major issues trying to understand the ideas, terminology, and concepts.

By: Samantha Decker
August 1st, 2017

  We know that a lot goes into planning for Sunday morning. The welcome, the worship, the sermon, and other aspects of your service are all thought out, but somehow, the offering time seems to typically be an afterthought. But, just like preachers should pray, read, and study, and just like musicians should rehearse, someone needs to prep for the offering.

Question: How much time do most churches allot for people to give? Answer:  Somewhere between two and five minutes just once a week.

By: Joanna Gray
April 19th, 2017

  When it comes to money, it’s no secret that the world has gone digital. Think about it. When was the last time you wrote a check to pay for your groceries? Do you even carry any cash in your wallet to have on hand anymore? Are most of your bills set up on automatic or online payments? These days, managing and spending money is done almost exclusively in a digital space. And if that’s true for most areas of life, shouldn’t it be true for your church giving as well?
