Publisher's Description

The purpose of this book is to help churches raise more money for ministry and mission by better using electronic media.  

Although philanthropy in the US is growing, churches continue to receive a declining portion of that philanthropy. Part of the challenge is that America is becoming significantly less dependent on paper currency (cash and checks) yet the church continues to count on paper currency as their primary media for donations. There have been warning signals for several years. Many churches face shrinking budgets and membership and are beginning to ask the right questions. The author's goal is to capture this teachable moment with a resource that will encourage pastors and church leaders to utilize tools already available to change the trajectory of their resourcing; because nothing is more important than what God has called them to do.

The banking and electronic giving industries have not made it easy for churches to understand their services or fees. This book will take the confusion and fear away and open churches to new possibilities.

Author Bio

Richard Rogers is Senior Ministry Strategist with Horizons Stewardship. He joined Horizons in 2010 after 20 years as a leader in Industry and the local church, including 9 years in management with a Fortune 500 company. He has served as Administrator and Minister of Education in a growing local church, where he oversaw a $4 million campus relocation and two subsequent building projects as well as several successful capital campaigns. Under his leadership the church's operating budget increased by 70%. Richard now partners with pastors across the country to secure resources for funding vision and growth in churches.

Christopher founded the Horizons Stewardship Company in 1992 following a challenging career in pastoral ministry.  He serves as the company’s CEO to this day.  In his twenty years as a pastor, he led numerous major building and capital campaigns.  Since founding Horizons, he and his strategists have led consultations in over 2,000 churches, conferences, synods and diocese in all phases of building, finance, and church growth raising billions of dollars for ministry.

Christopher is a certified church growth consultant and has earned the coveted title CFRE (Certified Fund Raising Executive).  In 1995, he was given the National Circuit Rider Award by the United Methodist Church for outstanding leadership in developing vital congregations. He has personally worked in over 42 states and is a frequent speaker at stewardship seminars around the country.  He is the co-author of the book Holy Smoke, the author of Not Your Parents’ Offering Plate, Whose Offering Plate Is It?, Rich Church - Poor Church and The Church Money Manual

Dr. Bill Easum, noted consultant and author, said, "No one knows more about local church stewardship than Clif Christopher."  Mega church pastor, Adam Hamilton said, "When I have a stewardship question, I call Clif Christopher."  Foundation director, David Atkins said, "Clif is one of the most effective communicators in the field of church fundraising today."  Author and highly successful pastor, Mike Slaughter said, "Clif Christopher is one of the top authorities on church finance and stewardship in America."  Abingdon Press has described him as "The leading voice of finance and stewardship in the Christian Church." 
Christopher has been an ordained minister of the United Methodist Church since 1975, is a combat veteran of the Gulf War, and is married and living in Little Rock, Arkansas.
