How The Church Can Keep Up With The Economy
The church leaders should be very wise on how to meet the economic demands so that the church can overcome any financial issues. 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. For a specific quarter you may as well send them letters that has their specific names and a statement of how they have given previously. The letter should highlight the specific mission achievement for the past quarter like the faith conversion, a mission team support or new members. Let that member that offers support feel they are appreciated, and their effort is useful.
Throughout the year let your members have generosity testimonies. You should listen to the stories from church members who might be facing challenges, but are still faithful in giving and are finding the presence of God adequate. During the church service, you can have these members share their stories to other church followers. It is even better to have their stories shared not only in the church but also through the church website and the church publications. It is hard to make people understand about generosity through teaching rather you should let them have a taste of its feeling.
In the church newsletter include the giving report of the previous 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. You ought to win the trust of your members by giving them realistic and accurate outcome of your calculations. Make lessons that are more into generosity when you go for your sermons service. Before the year ends to make sure you repeatedly preach about generosity. Consider a counseling center that guides people on finances.
Some of the church members have the required skills and training in areas such as banking, accounts, investors, insurance and financial advisers. Let the experts in financial studies en-light the rest of church members on money management, financial planning, debt and money management and most importantly on planned giving. You can use a motivational speaker to an emphasis on people to live more on faith and generosity and live beyond fear and anxiety. Preach and teach your church members on Biblical giving a sermon that shows that the generous people are the happiest people.
The price vision is one consideration that most people use to judge the church. Let the church has a vision that all people can understand. You should be in a position to communicate clearly with your church members to avoid misunderstandings. If you feel the need of having a project you should research on how the members feel about the project. The campaign will guide the leaders on what to expect from the members.
