While we all know that online giving is on the rise and more dollars are going digital, there is, however, still a general lack of awareness about how online giving helps church leaders connect with people on a deeper level.
‘Twas the start of the new year, no jingle bells in sight,
With each mall Santa gone home, and trees without lights.
Now, year-end giving letters evoke angst and dread,
Hanging ever menacingly o’er church leaders’ heads.
We know. You just wrapped up 2016 with all its busyness and holidays and festivities and services and parties and cheer.
The impact that your givers have on your church’s ministry is undeniable. As church leaders we should celebrate what God has done in our membersthrough the spiritual discipline of generosity. We can do this through annual giving statements.
