Webinar for Local Church Leaders in Finance & Stewardship on May 11th


Scheduled: Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 6:30 pm, CDT For many of your church members, the only check they write any more is the one to the church -- unless your church is offering the convenient option of giving electronically! Churches that are open and supportive of this giving option are seeing a great increase in the consistency of people's giving!  As this tool of generosity grows in popularity, there are more and more options from which to choose. Join us for this webinar as Ken Sloane hosts Jan Jasmine of Vanco Payment Solutions to explore an exciting offer this UMC partner is providing local churches. We will explore the options technology offers and highlight the things you should consider when making a decision for a company to manage electronic donations for your congregation.
