(Part of a sequence of emails sent to pre-qualified leads who opted in to getting information about this course… which is about how to effectively raise funds for churches in a rapidly changing world.)
A church planter I know raised $120,000 after taking this course…
Hey [FIRST NAME GOES HERE],
Real quick, I wanted to let you know that we’ll be closing registration for Jason Coker’s upcoming course Church Fundraising in Post-Christendom on Thursday June 16. And we only have 3 spots left!
I also wanted to share with you a story of a church planter I know who took this course. He’s planting a missional church in Santa Monica, just outside LA.
A few weeks ago, we were just catching up on the phone and chatting about how things were going, etc. I mentioned that we were going to be offering Jason’s course, and he said, “Oh that’s awesome! I took that course.”
“Oh, really?” I said, “What a coincidence! How did you like it?”
“Well,” he answered, “After taking the course, I raised $120,000 in pledged donations for my church plant in just under a month.” (!!)
Somewhat taken aback, I asked, “How did you do that?” He told me, “I know this sounds weird, but I just did what he said.”
Now, your mileage may vary! But hearing that seemed like a confirmation to me that what we’re offering in Church Fundraising in Post-Christendom is an approach to raising money that’s theologically missional, highly ethical, and also radically effective.
- It’s not a “quick fix” for anything. Rather, it’s an invitation to a deep paradigm shift in how we think about mission, money, and relationships.
- It’s deeply aligned with a missional theology. It’s not just some tips and techniques, it’s a holistic vision that illuminates fundraising implications of missional theology.
- It’s actually effective at helping leaders raise money for churches. It’s not just a condemnation of unethical tactics, it’s a set of paradigms and practices that actually does help churches raise money for mission.
This is why I’m taking the course for my church plant. I hope you’ll check it out. It’s a live 8-week course for $300. There are only 3 spots left (out of 10 available). And don’t forget we need to close registration Thursday June 16 so we can get started the following week.
Let me know if you have any questions!
