Unleash Generosity

Before Give.Church, Highland used online and kiosk giving. But it rarely worked when people were ready to give. Once Highland Park found Give.Church, it was just a matter of transitioning from their old ways to give to this new platform. Their rollout strategy included:

 

1. Sunday morning announcement

2. How-to Give.Church walk-through

3. Follow up email with specific instructions

After that first Sunday, Highland followed up with their congregation in their inboxes. 

 

Results

Highland Park saw a 10% increase in new givers since introducing Give.Church.

 

Takeaways

 

1. Tell them why! If you’re transitioning to anything new, it’s important to clearly explain why you’re switching and what makes this new solution better. Communicate what the change will mean for individuals, when it will take place, and exactly what each person needs to do.

 

2. Introduce Give.Church more than once: The initial announcement happened in service on Sunday and was supported by an email for those who needed a reminder or who might not have been present.

 

3. Don’t just tell, show: Highland supported everything Pastor Craig said with an awesome how-to video.

Our goal is to bring new people into a generous relationship with your church. The fact that this year, 10% of those who used Give.Church began that relationship with Highland Park is huge, and definitely worth celebrating. 

  

People knew they should give, but didn’t, because it wasn’t easy enough. Over the last 6 weeks, those people began tithing.

We recently caught up with Jason Cahill, lead pastor from River’s Edge Church in Boise, who shared his church’s experience using Give.Church.

 

Jason first heard about Kindrid through a mentor at Generations Church. At that point, given the size of his own congregation, he wasn’t convinced they could afford Give.Church.

 

9 months later, after learning that River's Edge still hadn’t signed up, Jason's mentor teased him for having such a bad excuse and told him to just do it. At midnight that same evening, Jason and his wife began setting up their Give.Church account. It was finished 15 minutes later. Give.Church at River’s Edge was ready to launch the next morning. 

 

Knowing the platform is backed by Life.Church and fully integrates with Fellowship One, Jason trusted his mentor’s advice to prove itself. In turn, gaining congregational support was incredibly simple. The results are truly astonishing. 

 

6 weeks after introducing the platform to River's Edge, Give.Church accounts for 75% of total giving.

 

Jason reflected, “People knew they should give, but didn’t, because it wasn’t easy enough. Over the last 6 weeks, those people began tithing.” He’s even had people thank him for making giving so easy!

 

Joining Give.Church takes most people less than 30 minutes—and half that time, in Jason’s case. Despite his initial hesitancy to join Give.Church, Jason was thrilled with the simplicity and speed of the process, both on the front-end with account set up and now, as his people regularly text their tithes.

 

In a culture where people rarely carry cash or check, Give.Church empowers the Church to enter into greater obedience by giving in a way that works with their lifestyles.
