Blue Springs Christian Church

Estate Planning Seminar Generates nearly $400,000 in Legacy Gifts

Blue Springs Christian Church offered the Abundant Living Legacy of Love estate planning workshop and the results were startling.  What could motivate members to give nearly $400,000 to their church?

The answer is love…or rather leaving a loving legacy to God. Over the course of two years, Blue Springs Christian Church offered the Abundant Living Legacy of Love estate planning workshop two times. Not only did the attendees receive top-flight estate planning information from a certified estate-planning attorney, they also learned about the seven documents all people need in their estate plan, they received over $2,000 worth of legal documents, and they fully grasped the core message of the workshop – to leave a lasting legacy of love to God and family.

Workshop attendees took what they learned and crafted loving estate plans which included nearly $400,000 in bequests to the church. These funds, given in faith to God’s work, will help support ministry long after the faithful followers of Jesus go to be with God in heaven.

Ministry success is not always measured in a quantifiable numbers, but in this case the results were both encouraging and inspiring. Multiple families made gifts too, so it was not just one wealthy family making a big gift. It was a number of families just like yours who decided to add their church to their end-of-life giving plan.

Establishing an effective planned giving ministry at your church is an often overlooked component of stewardship ministry. Blue Springs Christian is glad they invested the time and financial resources necessary to help their members make loving, Christ-centered estate plans.
