“We are a rotary phone church in a digital world!” That was the comment of a layperson who called me a few weeks back to inquire about our online giving company, Charis Giving Solutions, http://charisgivingsolutions.com/ I laughed but tragically many churches are stuck in the last century as are many capital campaign firms. It is a digital world!
If so many people use their smartphone to do just about everything why would we not make the capital campaign digital friendly? Do you know how to do that? We do! Have you even thought about this? We have!
We are ready to help you design and implement a campaign that will utilize all the tools of technology today so that your campaign can be as effective as possible. As I always say, “It is not 1980 so why would your campaign look like it was?” If you want to connect with your entire congregation, you must have multiple ways in which people can commit to your campaign AND multiple ways in which they can give to your campaign.
Don’t be a rotary church in a digital world and don’t hire a rotary stewardship firm either!
