The Fully Funded material/ministry has proven to be VERY successful for our church. Below, I have listed our results of following the FF modules.
At the outset, getting our church to “buy” into the FF plan was a challenge. We had been experiencing some financial challenges and some people just didn’t want to spend money on an “unproven” plan; regardless of the money back guarantee. Plus, putting together a FF Team was no easy task, which finally occurred when I agreed to chair it. But it was worth it!
Our FF team consistently met and worked through each module. They made recommendations when and where appropriate. Those recommendations were approved!
We now have more people giving online; and most have made their giving reoccurring.
We initiated the Text-to-Give option (previously, not an option) and people are using it.
We did the 90-Day Giving Challenge for June-Aug and it was very successful. (We gave out Andy Stanley’s book, Fields of Gold). While there were several factors involved, when we compared the giving from June-Aug. 2016 with June-Aug. 2017 there was a $4,000 increase. I know that the Giving Challenge was the most significant factor. We average 90 in worship, so a $4,000 increase was certainly a reason to praise God and celebrate!
