Making the Annual Pledge Drive Obsolete

Making the Annual Pledge Drive Obsolete

How Churches Can Get Out of This Business Once and For All

Authors: Timothy Dombek, Michael Durall

Price: $16.00

Dombek and Durall make the case that generosity is a deeply religious act. They believe that churches need to find a way to share the joy that comes from helping those in need. This book suggests an alternative to the badgering aspects of annual fundraising and offers a vision for transforming charitable giving. Furthermore, they contend that the time, effort, energy, and angst that go into conducting the annual pledge drive are a very poor investment of the church's resources.

"Our hope is that your church, of whatever size or faith tradition, will join the ranks of the happiest and healthiest congregations; churches that buzz with excitement, purpose, and meaning because they give a larger than average share to mission and outreach beyond their four walls. These churches have a raison d'etre, a well-defined reason for being."- From the Introduction

p>"Timothy and Michael are two writers who know what they are talking about. When they speak we should listen. They know that holding the annual pledge drive is an admittance of failure on the church's part."-J. Clif Christopher, author of Not Your Parents' Offering Plate

"A powerful book that should be required reading for all church leaders. The authors offer thoughts both practically and spiritually grounded that will transform our understanding of charitable giving and the use of money in the church."-The Rev. C.K. Robertson, Ph.D. , author of Transforming Stewardship

"This book is a no-nonsense challenge to both our personal and congregational habits. It urges spiritual introspection, and calls us to become 'Members with Integrity' in church and society." - The Rt. Rev. Mary Gray-Reeves, Episcopal Bishop of The Diocese of El Camino Real, California
