March 19, 2020 – Electronic Recurring Giving: Needed Now More Than Ever!


Webinar from Discipleship Ministries

DATE: Thursday, March 19, 2020

TIME: 7:30 p.m. EDT (6:30 p.m. CDT)

PRESENTERS: Ken Sloane, Joe Park, Richard Rogers

For all of its negative impacts, the Coronavirus has created an unprecedented opportunity for churches of all sizes to strengthen their long-term annual giving by taking steps today to increase the number of households who use recurring electronic giving. Having one or more electronic giving options is just the first step. The goal is to have over fifty percent of your households using automatic recurring giving. Recurring giving does not happen by accident. It takes a good plan and focused effort. Join Ken Sloane, Director of Stewardship and Generosity at Discipleship Ministries, as he hosts Horizons Stewardship’s Joe Park, CEO and Managing Partner, and Richard Rogers, Senior Vice President and author of eGiving Guide for Every Church from Abingdon Press. Together they will share steps every church should be taking today, outlines mistakes to avoid, and share a free downloadable guide to increasing recurring electronic giving during the Coronavirus outbreak.
