CHURCH GIVING IS DOWN, CHARITABLE GIVING IS UP.

Church giving in America has declined while overall charitable giving continues to grow rapidly. As a result, American churches are struggling more than ever.

There was a time when charities looked to churches as models for how to cultivate giving – but not anymore. Today, the field of philanthropy has embraced what many churches are slow to realize: we live in an increasingly post-Religious society where givers are motivated by a very different set of values and expectations.

LEARN HOW TO REVERSE THIS TREND IN YOUR CHURCH.

In the course, you’ll learn how to cultivate deep wells of funding and support for your church’s mission. No matter how big or small your church, no matter what your temperament or experience level, you can learn these skills.

Over the course of six live online 1-hour sessions, you'll learn proven nonprofit fund development practices and how to effectively adapt them to your church in the growing reality of a post-Christendom culture. You'll also have access to one-on-one Q&A sessions with me and get to know other leaders, like you, who are developing innovative approaches to church leadership.

I don't teach pastors how to pressure people for money. The best fundraisers are deeply relational and authentic, just like the best pastors. By learning to understand changing values and expectations, you will be empowered to be yourself and still grow giving in your church.
