The church leaders should always appreciate the efforts of their members on a regular basis. Just the way you ask for help the same way you should practice telling your members “Thank you” for their support. You can send letters that address them personally along with their statement of giving for that specific quarter. The letter you send should have the records of the member’s achievement like the mission team support, faith conversion and the new members. The church member should have a feeling of appreciation that will make him or her feel they are helping someone else.
Encourage generosity testimonies throughout the year. Make time and listen to those members who might be facing hard times but they find comfort in the presence of God and are not tired in giving. This member should have a chance to share their story with the whole church. Make a point of sharing their stories to all members and have the testimonies published in the church publication and the church site. People learn more through illustrations than when you try teaching them theoretically.
Let the publishers of the church newsletter report about the giving report of the past month or week. Fro you to make your members have a positive attitude toward the church financial state, you ought to use the necessary method in calculating the offering. The results you release to the church members should be realistic and accurate for them to trust you. You should make sermons that teach a lot about generosity. Before the year ends to make sure you repeatedly preach about generosity. It is advisable to open a financial counseling center.
In church there are many people with diverse knowledge such as accounts, banking, investors, insurance and financial advisers. You can select some of the members and let them teach others about financial planning, debt and money management and mostly planned giving. Invite a motivational teacher to encourage people to live on faith and generosity and fight fear and anxiety. Use Biblical illustration when you preach showing how generous people live happily
The price vision is one consideration that most people use to judge the church. You vision should be easy to understand. Be clear when you communicate with your church members so that you can avoid communication barriers. Have a pre-campaign readiness assessment before you decide to start a new project for the church.
