Personalized Coaching Every Step of the Way
Fund Your Mission and See Growth in 2024

When December rolls around, churches land in one of three groups…

  • Struggling to meet their annual budget
  • Chasing an ambitious goal that’s close… but just off target
  • Making peace that things will land the same as last year

Wherever you land, what could your church do with an extra $50,000 of funding? What about an extra $250,000 of funding? 

Well, the stats don’t lie. 

30% of all giving (that’s right, the entire year) is donated in the last 45 days—from November 16th to December 31st. 

It’s the biggest opportunity (or missed opportunity) your church has to increase generosity this year. 

People will be giving generously. The question is, will they give to your church? Or somewhere else?

How much will unclear messaging and a lack of strategy cost you this year?

How many of your people won’t end up giving generously because they don’t understand your vision for 2024 and beyond? 

That’s what happens to churches that don’t have an intentional, coordinated plan for the last 45 days of the year. 

And far too many churches leave funds on the table by not properly planning for and executing a year-end giving campaign. 

Just take a look at the numbers. 

But before you scroll any further…

Take a minute to dream about the impact your ministry could have with extra funding. Be specific, and don’t hold back. 

Far too often, we shrink our vision of what we think is possible because we doubt our ability to make it happen. We spend too much time worrying about what could go wrong and not enough time dreaming about what happens if things go right

So, what is it? 

  • How much could your church raise? And what if it was 10% more than that? 
  • How are you going to invest that into your mission or community? And what if you didn’t have to limit it to one thing? 

And don’t worry about dreaming too big. You can bring your vision and goals to one of our Discovery Calls to determine if the Best Year End Ever is the path to make them happen.

Get a proven action plan for the last 45 days of 2023. Introducing

The Best Year-End Ever will equip you and your team with everything you need to run a successful year-end giving campaign in 2024.

And when we say everything, we mean it.

On October 10th, you’ll get an overview (and checklist) of every single meeting, email, social media post, conversation, and task you and your team need to do before the end of the year.

That might sound like a lot… but we’ve already created templates for every single piece. That means you can simply plug and play if you wish.

And to top it all off, you get personalized coaching from

…not one…
…not two…

… but THREE sought-after ministry coaches, each with decades of experience leading year-end giving campaigns for churches of all sizes.

When you understand how to talk about the vision for you ministry and know exactly which steps to take (and to avoid), your ministry will be well-supported and funded for 2024.

Meet last year’s successful students.

Last year, every single church that joined the Best Year-End Ever either met or exceeded the ambitious goal they set for their campaign—ranging from $50,000 to $250,000+.

But don’t just take our word for it. Listen to what Josh has to share.

This is your chance to make your boldest vision a reality.

Decades of experience helping churches exceed annual budgets in the last 45 days of the year.
