Congregational Engagement Generosity Conversations

Generosity Conversations

Generosity conversations are a dynamic step forward. The Congregational Engagement team invites church leaders to determine their current financial reality and stewardship practices. As trusted partners, the Congregational Engagement team supports leaders to chart a bold but achievable course toward their preferred future.

Creating a Culture of Generosity

By asking focused questions, the Congregational Engagement team is equipped to help churches dive to a deeper level of generosity.

Creating a culture of generosity requires careful analysis of your current financial position and good questions help us identify that reality. We’ll ask the right questions and provide important resources to help guide you in your generosity journey.

Church Endowment Services

Another resource TMF offers is helping churches design, launch, and promote gift-planning programs and church endowment funds to secure a strong future for their unique mission. 

An enormous transfer of wealth between generations will occur within the next 10 to 15 years. Our Congregational Engagement team can be your partner in motivating donors to give to your mission. We can help you establish an endowment fund and position your church to receive a portion of those assets. Utilizing these services may be the most crucial step in securing your church's financial future.
