Share This Post

Compassion International

I’d like to highlight a ministry that is all about the local church – Compassion International. Compassion’s mission is to release children from poverty in Jesus’ Name. I love Compassion and have been a supporter for years – you may already be familiar with them, too, but did you know that every sponsored child, all 2.2 million, are cared for by a local church in their community? Every single one.

Compassion partners with over 8400 local churches in the developing world to break the cycle of poverty in their communities. That means when your church partners with Compassion, you are helping a pastor and church reach its community with the love of Jesus.

If you are a church leader, Compassion also provides engaging resources for your people. As a pastor, Compassion offered opportunity for everyone in our church to be personally engaged in missions, and they made it easy for me as a lead pastor.

Are you leaving money on the table? If you’re only accepting cash donations at your church, this could be the case.

Did you know that 90% of wealth is actually in NON-cash assets? When cash is the only giving option, you’re putting a lid on generosity.

Overflow is here to lift that lid, and unlock more ways to give. Overflow is an online software that empowers donors to easily give non-cash assets (such as stock) to churches in minutes, not months.

Why is this important? Well, the average cash donation in the U.S. is just $128, but the average stock donation through Overflow is over $10,000.

The days of giving the church the ‘leftovers’ are behind us. It’s time to empower your donors to give from their overflow.

Let’s unlock more giving channels for the Kingdom together. Go to to learn how.

Increase Giving and Fully Fund Your Mission—Regardless of Where You're at Now.

When it comes to money conversations with your church, my guess is that you want the outcome (margin in your budget and a generous congregation) without the process (having to raise funds and talk about it).

The Art of Building a Generous Congregation is a proven method for increasing giving, creating a culture of generosity, and building financial margin at your church... without the stress and awkwardness.

Even if you don’t feel comfortable talking about money right now.
Even if you’ve never seen your congregation fully engage with that kind of conversation.
Even if you’ve tried other methods without success.

And yes, especially, if you could make a bigger difference by increasing your budget by 20%, 30%, or even 40%.
