Hope in Despairing Times: A Success Story in Three Parts (Part Three)

27 Feb. 2017 Posted by Denis Greene in Success Stories

Holy Trinity Catholic Church (Lenexa, Kansas) has shared their good news with us: annual giving for 2017 is up by fifteen percent! In a time of political and economic volatility, how can this be? Three basic steps of our Stewardship System are an integral part of this “surprise”. I have already touched on two of these steps:

  1. Thanking People
  2. Engaging People

This week, step three: asking for detailed input. This step builds on engaging people, taking it to another level. At Holy Trinity, Fr. Mike Koller took part in small (and large) group suppers. In addition to the fellowship, parishioners had the opportunity for extended conversations about the church’s vision for ministry. Additionally, Fr. Mike met one on one in homes with families of significant means in order to cultivate larger gifts.

In short, our Stewardship System works, and we would love to share it and its success with you. Are you looking for ways to grow annual giving in your church? Let us know. We love working with churches as you discover the generosity that God has in store for you!
