12 ways you can create a culture of generosity in your church in 2013

Want to know how you as a leader can help your church be much more generous during 2013?  Brian Dodd has some suggestions:

Churches Should Tell The Compelling Stories Of Need Within Their Community

Donors are now desiring to give directly to real people with real stories rather than anonymously through charities.

Unite Your People Around One Cause At A Time

Church leaders need to make the stories of need targeted and specific.  HopeMob.org only features one story at a time.  This prevents your generous community from being fragmented.

Develop Systems

Learn to leverage impulse generosity.  When a need arises, be prepared to immediately address it.  Have systems in place where you can quickly address needs.

Social Media Is Here To Stay So Leverage It

Social media has exponentially raised the awareness of issues and real human stories of those in need.  Generous communities have learned to leverage this.

Make Giving Easy

Social media and electronic giving makes generosity easy.

Expand Your Circle Of Influence

Social media expands the circle of those who have the ability and resources to provide solutions.  The entire world now has the ability and access to participate in funding your cause.

    I am not comfortable with most of this; especially terms like “leverage”, sounds a lot like an organization and not the living Body. Sounds like man’s strategies and plans. I am certain that there is no scarcity in the resources of God, so maybe we should just help our people grow into Kingdom living, learning that all we have is God’s and that we are just conduits. How about discipleship and maturity, prayer and trusting God. God is fully capable to fill empty buckets, according to HIS will and HIS plans. With all the advantages of social media there are many pitfalls and dangers. The social media can also serve to “guilt” people into giving. When is the last time you asked your church to tell you when they have been extremely blessed spiritually when they gave?
    “Leveraging” sounds a tad bit like manipulation, and asking God to bless our plans.

      In my experience, God sometimes fills empty buckets through the work of individuals in organizations, and created the church as both organization and the living Body of Christ. And I find it amazing how God’s people find creative ways to use media to connect people to the church’s mission. Any “gift” can be mis-used. It’s up to God’s people to find ways to use them responsibly to advance the kingdom.
