It is hard to believe I am already looking at dates in the fall for business and personal schedules. It seems like just yesterday that I was walking 4 miles to my house in the snow during Snowpocalypse 2014 in Atlanta! The race is now on to get everything in before school gets out. Right?
Most churches try to have some type of fall schedule on paper before everyone breaks for the summer. Many churches have an annual fall stewardship emphasis. Are you one of those churches? Have you made preliminary plans for the your church’s generosity focus this fall? Have you set goals for what you hope to accomplish during the fall emphasis on giving.
At Generis we believe that numbers have a story to tell. Numbers do not tell the entire story but they have a unique story to tell within every church. I have learned what numbers have to say in the context of the local church. A person’s giving is a key indicator of their commitment to God and to the local church. We feel it is important to look at the numbers and uncover what story they are telling about each church.
What story are the numbers telling about your church?
Generis has created a tool to help you get started analyzing the numbers of your church. We call it the Generosity Potential Assessment or GPA. It is a great way to begin the process of uncovering the story the numbers are telling in your church.
If you would like to know your church’s generosity potential you can get started here. Please let me know what you find out. I’d love to have a conversation with you to discuss the findings.
