Pre-Seminar Event with Brad Leeper
Unveiling the Mystery of Your Church’s Donors
Tuesday, February 19, 2019
Hilton Dallas/Park Cities
$250 per person.
Limited attendance. Included is the XPastor Online Course “MS202—Generosity.”
Get a rare and unique insight into your giving world. Using a new data analytic platform, we will capture your giving data in advance of the workshop.
Your data will then be available at the workshop where you can explore your giving reality and trends in a way that cannot be unearthed through most church management software platforms. The insights will help you see often-hidden trends and help you proactively navigate giving growth.
Not only will you see the reality of your giving but you will understand what it means and what to do about it.
Why did donors leave you last year? Job transfer? Getting mad? How do you shut the back door and how do we emphasize the front door? Are you attracting new donors? This session will give a different slant on your church’s data. It will tell you many things that are different than what is readily apparent.
Most of us have assumptions about giving and generosity …
Brad Leeper is the President and Principal at Generis, a team of coaches that accelerates generosity toward God-inspired vision. Brad works with churches across the country, and now internationally, to increase everyday church giving, project giving and legacy giving.
Imagine seeing a new perspective on your church’s financial health. See your church in a readable, understandable and helpful format. This is a must for your next steps of your church.
The Generosity Workshop will be held on Thursday, February 20 from 2:00-4:30 pm., right before the XP-Seminar. This is the place to get a handle on your church’s financial health.
This workshop will give you plenty of data to work with, in an eminently understandable format. Generis is just releasing a diagnostic tool and is offering free use of it for the workshop. This includes a 3-page summary report. Plus, you can talk through your report at the workshop and receive more personalized discussion in person or by phone.
Get a numerical analysis of:
- People giving above a strategic amount
- Lapsed donors
- Banding of key donation levels … and much more.
- Must have Church Community Builder (other software platforms to follow).
- Attend the Coaching Workshop before the XP-Seminar.
- Data analysis needs to be begun 14 days before the XP-Seminar.

You Need to Know
Suppose you see that giving is up ten percent. Is that more donations per attendee or more donors?
Knowing your metrics tells you where you are, where you are going and measures how you are doing getting there.
With a ten percent increase in donations, how many of those were new donors? Are you attracting new donors?
Increase your giving without requiring a capital campaign.
Even with a ten percent increase in donations, how many donors stopped giving? Are they still attending? When do people stop giving and how much later do they typically leave your church?
- Why did donors leave you last year? Job transfer? Did they leave mad?
- How do you shut the back door and how can you emphasize the front door?
- Are you attracting new donors?
This session will give a different slant on your church’s data. It will tell you many things that are different than what is readily apparent.
Are giving increases a result of a growing donor constituent base or are you pressing into a small portion of donors to make budget growth? Learn why one is sustainable while the other is short lived.
Connecting and Growing First Time Donors
First time visitors are great! However, are you able to on-board them as donors? Are you able to assimilate them into the fabric of the ministry? If not, learn why weekend attendance growth can be a false positive for healthy ministry growth.
New faces in church are great, but what is the financial impact of losing the old ones? Minimizing donor churn can supercharge weekend attendance and annual giving growth. Monitoring donor trends is one way to surface ministry opportunities. Rule based push reporting can increase your ministry efficiency and connect with those that need pastoral care.
