More About the Course
Too many churches don’t have an intentional strategy with generosity. A lot of the time, churches are relying on hope that their congregations will be good stewards. But hope isn’t a great strategy. In this course, we’ll help you create a simple but solid financial plan that engages more people in generosity. It’s not about gimmicks or tactics, it’s about a holistic approach backed by a good strategy.
We’ll start by helping you create a funding plan – we call this The Second Budget. See, most churches have a budget that shows where they are going to spend money. But very few churches have a detailed plan on how they are going to receive money. We will help you create this plan and show you exactly what to put on it. For most churches, this one exercise changes their financial culture.
Video 1: The Second Budget
Video 2: The Right Way to Talk About Money
Video 3: Choosing the Best Solutions
Video 4: How to Increase Giving Quick
Video 5: Getting People to Give for the First Time
Video 6: Telling Stories for Greater Impact
Video 7: The New Rules of Church Fundraising
Video 8: What Pastors Need to Know About Money
Each video is insanely practical, pointing to actionable resources and tools to help you implement what you learn.
When you finish the course, you will have a plan in place talk about all aspects of generosity throughout the year. You’ll know exactly when to do what.
The lessons you learn and the work you do will have long-term ramification in helping create a church where the budget isn’t driving the vision but the other way around.
Healthy Strategy Leads to Healthy Culture
More Generosity, More Ministry Opportunities
What would your church do with more resources or a healthier financial situation? It’s likely you have ministry dreams and want to make a bigger impact in your community. When more people give to the church, you can do more ministry.
Stewardship is a Part of Discipleship
Money isn’t just a financial issue, it’s a spiritual issue. Jesus said our hearts and finances were connected. So when you get intentional about your financial strategy, particularly when it comes to communications, you’ll actually help people follow Jesus.
More People Connected to the Life of the Church
When people give to your church, it’s a double blessing. Your church is able to use those resources to make a difference. And the individuals who give are also blessed. Generosity is good for everyone. And this kind of culture is attractive to people in your community.

What Other Pastors Are Saying
I am loving the course! Our leadership team has gone through module one, and we're already implementing quite a few changes. This will be very good for us, and we will be working at it for the next several months.
– Keith Wishum
I am an old fashioned fundamentalist and view the new stuff with the typical suspectful eye. But, I admit… I am seeing value and getting help with some of these tools. Mom always said “don't throw the baby out with the wash”.
– Dan Alexoff
With so much to do, Church Fuel is helping me focus and providing incredible tools for our team to use. Spending my own personal money on this each month is well worth it.
– Ronnie Whitfield
Since I've been implementing some of the things that I've learned from Church Fuel, we have grown. When I took over, we were at 54 members. We have grown now to where our attendance every Sunday is around 130. Because of our growth, we've had to go to two services, and I attribute a lot of that to Church Fuel.
– Christopher George
Church Fuel is an integral part to my personal leadership development, giving me specific items to work through in our staff and church. Our staff team became aligned to the same goals and we worked intentionally through them strengthening our team, culture, and systems. Not only would I say we have a healthier church culture, but I have greater confidence in what I'm doing, and know specifically what to work on.
