"Build Your Church’s Generosity Before Building Your Church"

For far too long churches have accepted their default giving patterns and cultures. Church leaders have relied on giving principles that are dated and overused. The minds and motivations of givers today have changed dramatically. If churches are to keep up, they must change their approach to funding their vision. In this workshop, we will explore best practices that can help your church build a culture of generosity in order to continually accomplish the vision God has given you. These are strategies you can begin to implement right away.
Attendees will receive…

  • field-tested, practical steps for building a generosity culture

  • access to communication samples

  • encouragement for advancing generosity as part of biblical discipleship

"Delivery Systems: How Design and Construction Services are Delivered to Today’s Church"

Church building committees spend countless hours wrestling with the approach they will take to design and build their new facilities, and with good reason.  Construction still remains the number two most litigated industry in America today behind medical.  The result is almost $.20 of every construction dollar goes towards claims and litigation.  So how does a church protect themselves from becoming a statistic, while building positive relationships with their designers and builders? 
Attendees will learn:

  • how the three main delivery systems are contracted

  • the pro’s and con’s of each delivery system

  • which delivery system is the best “Fit” for you
