Four Philanthropy Essentials for the Church

elderly couple

“There are two times I hear from the church about my giving: asking for my stewardship pledge and letting me know if I got behind on it!”

We hear this from church members across the country too often. The reality is that today’s donors and tithers to our churches are most often donors to other causes and ministries. The harsh reality is that they’re often making their best and most sacrificial stretch gifts to those causes.
While support of the church is a Biblical calling and obligation for most, many of today’s donors also have expectations shaped by their experience giving to other causes. With the national decline in church membership and participation, churches have to re-evaluate how they’re inspiring donors and how they’re treating them year-round.

Ahhh…it’s almost fall! School has started. The leaves will change soon. Cooler air is just around the corner and the volunteer opportunities in your ministry are likely greater than ever. Now is the time to engage with your congregation to prepare for all of the ministry events that will be taking place this fall and the volunteers you’ll need to make them thrive!


Pastors are called to shepherd their flock. You are called to lead and serve your members well. But how often do we hear the pastor talk to their congregation about their expectations on how the church members should volunteer, serve, give and more. It needs to be addressed. The healthiest churches are those where the pastoral staff has expressed their expectations on how members should serve based on what the Bible says.


If you want to increase the number of volunteers, there are several things you can do, but it all starts with a goal of engaging people to serve more. Several factors are important to keep in mind when making goals for initiatives. Remember the who, what, when and how.

Use the summer to
grow your church

Summer. It’s a time for youth camps, kids activities, and other unique moments for your church—if people show up, that is. Because the summer months also bring the dreaded “summer slump,” that predictable decline in attendance and giving. 

Your schedule and responsibilities don’t slump, though. You’re still responsible for reaching your community, making disciples, and leading well. How do you get it all done? That’s what this guide shows you: the path to reaching more people and getting more done this summer.

This isn’t unproven theory or pie in the sky thinking. These insights come from real churches led by leaders just like you. 

In this guide, you discover:

  • The power of specificity in reaching more people
  • Why giving people a way to respond engages them more
  • How delegating responsibility is the key to making more disciples
  • How organizing groups is the path to greater engagement
  • How to increase giving and avoid the summer slump
  • Technology so you can work from anywhere, empower your staff, and engage your congregation
Pastors: get more people engaged and get more done

Imagine if this were your summer:

  • More people reached than ever before
  • Giving that stayed consistent or maybe even grew
  • More people who felt connected because they were reached in groups
  • Less stress, more done, and real growth happening in your staff and community


This guide shows you how this becomes reality. Download it today and see for yourself.

Church From


People are increasingly living their lives in mixed settings and multiple locations. Shouldn’t your church adapt to those realities? 

The Church is relational. Its work is missional. Its aim is eternal. Why limit its settings to the institutional? 

As many companies and organizations around the world are learning, you can actually get a lot done, and include more people, when you stop limiting your work and fun to only those who can get in the same place at the same time. The concept of “work from anywhere” has revolutionized the way people conduct business. 

The concept of church from anywhere will revolutionize the way you’ve imagined Church in a post-COVID era. 

We developed a free resource that will walk you through what you’ll need and how to implement the best ideas to help your people “meet” and encourage each other to be the Church, regardless of their location.
