Many churches have done well transitioning and leading through change during the past few months. A major change has been in how people give tithes, offerings, and gifts. What do you do with the stubborn church member who refuses to give digitally? Thom and Kevin Ezell discuss best practices to help lead in this area.
- Demonstrate how it’s good for the church
- Overcome the credit card fee objection (ACH as one alternative)
- Show how scheduled giving like drafts is an option
- Point to the stewardship and generosity success of other churches
- Get a person to work with them one-on-one
