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. How do you convince 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
Revitalize & Replant is sponsored by the North American Mission Board and ChurchReplanters.com. More than 10% of churches in North America are at risk of closing and the North American Mission Board is committed to reversing this trend by decreasing the death rate of existing churches while simultaneously increasing the birth rate of new churches. To learn more about what it means to become a replanting pastor or to explore resources for replanting and revitalization in your own church, visit ChurchReplanters.com.
