2:30 – 3:30
Room:  Haliburton

This workshop will focus on the WHY and HOW of giving in the 21st century. The WHY is simple:  people don’t carry cash or cheques anymore, especially the under 35 crowd.  But they never leave their smartphones out of sight! The HOW is even easier. With apps, text giving and simple website buttons, churches can now put the power to give in the hands of members and contributors. Giving anywhere and any time is a reality. When you remove the barriers, people who love your mission will give generously and often.
