I’m convinced that one of the chief roles a pastor has is to remove barriers for people to grow. The Apostle Paul answered objections pro-actively by presenting the Gospel to God-fearers, helping them take steps to become Christ-followers.
Likewise, when it comes to stewardship, we should remove barriers people have to biblical stewardship. Among answering cultural, theological, and budgetary objection, we also answer logistical objections by providing a giving envelope people can:
- take home with them and mail in without applying postage and
- can give using debit/credit card
This concept isn’t new. But, I think the design is. The design also helped us to eliminate our debit/credit card giving slip by merging it in with our giving envelope. What other processes is your church involved in that can be recreated/tweaked to improve on their original purpose?
