The best way to grow regular giving in your church.

Increase the budget by 22% or more. Proven plan. Minimal investment.

Imagine if regular giving increased in your church by 22% over the next 12 months. What kind of ministry would that enable? How many more people could you reach?

The church should be the most well-funded organization in your community.

But most churches struggle to meet budget and many pastors are poorly equipped to lead the church to financial health. The result is a stewardship struggle and lost ministry opportunities. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Introducing Fully Funded

Fully Funded is the only program that combines practical coaching, time-saving resources, and personal help. It’s a total generosity system for your church. It’s a proven financial plan that will result in confidence and clarity. It’s a brand new approach that results in a fully funded ministry.

Old Way
  • Preach on money when the offering is low or the budget is tight.
  • Finance team meetings focused on cutting expenses.
  • Donors who give because they are supposed to.
  • Offering times that lack purpose and excitement.
  • An exhausted Pastor who carries all the weight of the financial situation.
  • A confident communication and preaching plan.
  • Finance team meetings focused on growth and vision for the future.
  • Donors who give because they want to.
  • Offering times that are clear and intentional celebrations.
  • Empowered leaders who help share the load of fully funding the church.

Founding and Teaching Pastor

Connexus Church has utilized key principles taught by Fully Funded with tremendous results - especially in the area of increasing our regular giving. From personal help to our church to issuing 90-day giving challenges and from Financial Learning Experiences to personal finance stewardship resources, it has been so helpful. I would recommend this to any church.

  • Printed materials to help you go through the training with your team.

The Fully Funded Program Delivers Maximum Value

Churches who go through the Fully Funded program can expect as much as 22% increase in regular giving. That makes the Fully Funded program a valuable investment rather than an expense. But to make it easy on the budget, we’ve created three ways to pay.

  • $129/mo for 12 months
  • Content is Released 1 Month at a Time
  • The Money Message Series
  • Welcome Kit
  • Orientation Call
  • One Year Membership Included

Attending a conference with a few people from your church could cost $2,000 or more. Chances are, you’ll end up with a lot of inspiration but take very little action. Fully Funded is a much better value, and a resource you can share with your entire team.

Or you could hire a consultant to come in and help. You’ll get personal help, but that comes with a hefty price tag. With Fully Funded, you’ll get the same training we deliver in person but at a fraction of the price.

Finally, you can keep doing what you’re doing and keep getting the same results. When you consider what it’s costing you to stay the same, we think you’ll agree Fully Funded is worth the investment. For most churches, one new family who starts giving more than covers the cost.

Four Ways You Can Use Fully Funded in Your Church

  • 1
    Watch on your own.

    Access the content online and watch from any device. Download resources to your computer and use them to lead your church and increase regular giving.

  • 2
    Watch with your team.

    The Fully Funded program is perfect to use in staff meetings or with a small group of financial leaders. In fact, early in the program, we will help you identify a Fully Funded Champion who can help you take action.

  • 3
    Use the resources in your finance team meetings.

    Most finance team meetings are full of reports and cost-saving discussions. Those aren’t bad but they aren’t enough. With Fully Funded, your financial team will be able to focus on the vision of the church and play a vital part in increasing regular giving.

  • 4
    Organize a Fully Funded retreat.

    Set aside two days and pull the right people together and go through the material at one time.

The life cycle of generosity in your church is a lot like the life cycle of a farmer planting corn.

* If you skip any one of these steps, you’re not going to have a fully funded church.

Prepare – Before there is a harvest and planting someone has to prepare the ground. We are going to help you prepare the ground.

Plant – What you reap is entirely dependent on what you sow. In this part of the grow giving process we are going to talk about how to plant the seeds of generosity in your church.

Grow – Just like a seed grows into a plant. We are going to help you grow giving in your church in a healthy way with specific tools. Just like a farmer has special fertilizer, tractors, and staff we will show you the tools to grow financial leaders.

Harvest – This is where seasons of work pay off. Where we talk about how to receive and offering and how to receive special offering. How to maximize the offering.

Rest – One of the keys to a good harvest is giving the ground time to rest. Your church needs planned time to rest, when you pray and prepare for the next growing season. We’ll help you know what to do during this time.

    What can I expect?
    • An increase in overall, regular giving. Fully Funded is not a capital campaign. It’s a generosity system to help you increase regular giving. Go through this program and you can expect a significant increase to the overall church budget.
    • Happy givers. Many churches are full of reluctant givers, but this program will show you how to lead a church full of happy givers. And happy givers lead to a fully funded church.
    • Increased engagement from your staff, leaders and congregation. When your team gets on the same page and embraces their individual roles in the funding process, your church will experience greater generosity.
    • Healthy systems and processes for all the key components of a generosity system. You won’t wonder what to do anymore; you’ll have everything you need in place.
    • Financial confidence. Your leaders will have confidence in their ability to lead, your donors will trust their contributions are making a significant difference, and your church will have confidence in the overall ministry to the community.

Five Things We Believe About Money and the Church

If we’re going to invite you to be a part of our family, we think it’s only right that we let you know where we’re coming from.

  • Money is a spiritual issue not just a financial one. 17 of 38 parables of Jesus involved money.
  • Happy givers lead to fully funded churches.
  • There’s no harvest if you do not invest. 2 Cor. 9:6. Are you investing in your people. From, not for. You cannot prosper if you do not save.
  • The importance of the mission should be reflected in the depth of the plan. NASA’s JUNO spacecraft
  • God’s economy is never in recession. No matter what’s going on in the economy or with the next election.

If you go through the Fully Funded program and don't experience an increase in regular giving by at least 2x the price you pay in the giving year in the next budget, we will refund twice the amount of your investment.
