Helping members with their own financial wellbeing is one step in that direction.

Engaging Your Church with Technology to Grow Generosity Tim Heustess
Denominational Manager, ACS Technologies
Technology can help a church not only become more efficient in managing information, but also become more effective in ministry. Connecting, engaging and communicating with the church body is needed to support not just the mission of the local church but also the church as a whole. This workshop will share how mobile tools can engage your church body to improve communication, giving, and discipleship and how they can be instrumental in reaching millennials, who are in the largest population group in the US.
