As a Church Leader, it can be a challenge to encourage giving in your church, let alone getting visitors to give on Sundays, consistently. According to an article published by Barna, when American Christians were asked what actions they associate with the concept of “giving to others,” giving financially was third on the list. For most, it’s easier to “give” in terms of serving others and support causes as opposed to financial assistance. That isn’t to say that those ways of serving are bad at all. But going back to Cain and Abel, the gift reflects the heart that we have. There is something about finances that we hold closer to our hearts than the time we have to give to others. The Bible tells us that we cannot love both God and money because of this hold that it could have on our hearts. Our hope is to help you also excel in this grace of giving with 10 simple ways to increase giving and donations to your church.
