FUEL Funding Lab

Helping Churches grow their Giving and Create a Generosity Culture

The Funding Problem:

The financial model churches use was built 70+ years ago and you’re seeing what we’re seeing: It’s really not working like it used to.

Additionally, most economists believe there’s at least a slight economic downturn coming. If you’re a pastor or church leader, you’re already feeling those tremors.

Finally, not only are there significant generational shifts in how people give, but the the greatest transfer of wealth in human history is just starting to happen as Boomers move into retirement.

HEADLINE: The current church funding model isn’t working well, is exhausting, and leaves church leaders unprepared for the future.

The FUEL Solution:

You need a new, customized giving playbook, updating your current tactics and adjusting for surprising (and encouraging!) generational shifts.

This 6 month process exists to help you and your leadership team create and activate a funding plan that is custom built from your church’s unique DNA and the assets you have at your disposal. Furthermore, you’ll create a Generosity Discipleship Plan that will help the people in your church grow into spiritual maturity around all aspects of generosity in their life.

You walk away with a customized strategic plan, chalk full of fresh thinking and best practices, that will help you lead into the future with confidence.

If vision is the place you feel called to go, funding is the rocket fuel you’ll need to get there.
