Event Information

Does inviting someone to give to your ministry feel like an unnatural conversation? Are you timid about asking people to give financially? Does your work with major givers feel transactional? It doesn’t have to be this way.  

Gather with fundraising peers at this Mission Increase workshop. Together, you will learn how to transform the way you invite people to give so that there is greater ownership in your cause.  

Outcomes

  • Understand the biblical principles that inform how we invite people to give 
  • Articulate your mission and vision in a compelling way

If you or anyone on your team has been apprehensive about inviting financial gifts, don’t miss out!
