When I was in the Duke Fuqua School of Business, one of the things that was driven deep in my psyche was the criticality of sustainability. It would do every church leader well to consider sustainability factors when approaching executing their church vision. The Bible states, “Where there is no vision the people perish,” but we also know where there are no provisions the vision perishes. Nothing can squeeze the life out of a church and produce an atmosphere of negativity like financial pressure. Every pastor, regardless of how much he dreads it, must be responsible and generate the budget of the church in order to advance the life of the church. Many pastors have just abandoned the pulpit and have taken on additional employment to make ends meet. Research suggests 37% of people who attend church every week and identify themselves as Evangelical don’t give any money to their church. Benevolence giving has dropped 48% since 1968. The church as a whole is in the midst of a 40 year decline in percentage that Christians give.
In this dynamic seminar, “How to Increase Your Church’s Giving and Feel Good About It,” the Kingdom Voice and African-American Church Growth Expert, Dr. Dana Carson, will provide you some of the best biblical practices that are effective and ethical in generating funds for ministry. Dr. Carson has trained leaders worldwide how to generate their self-sustaining budgets for ministry execution and will teach you how to generate funds to support your vision as he has taught thousands worldwide.
