CHURCH GROWTH STRATEGIES
Here-4-You Consulting has a number of services specifically designed to help churches develop more funding and to move toward implementing a successful grant development strategy.
It is important for your church to have a strong internal and local funding base before seeking grant funding. Having a strong community presence, high visibility, congregational support, and a base of outward focused programs will help attract grant funding. In fact, an inward focused church with little or no outreach ministries will find it nearly impossible to secure outside funding. These are all areas we can help in developing while laying a foundation for grant development.
The following services have been found to be effective preliminary steps in preparing to begin a grant writing approach:
- Church/Congregational Needs Assessment: Congregational Surveys, Leadership Survey, Resource Assessment, Goal Identification and Prioritization
- Marketing Services: Logo Development, Mission & Vision, Print materials (Brochures, Business Cards, Letterhead, Giveaways), Website Development, Social Media Implementation
- Community Assessment: Community Needs Assessment, Resource Assessment, Outreach Opportunities Assessment, Organizational Development, Mission and Vision Development, Administrative Policies and Procedure Support, Program Development
- Stewardship Services: Stewardship Campaigns, Funding Development, Additional Service
Before we talk about grant writing with a church we will want to talk about how the church is positioned in these areas and then we can move forward to discuss other funding strategies.
Our ministry has a mission to help equip ministries with the funding resources they need to further reach people for the Kingdom. Here-4-You Consulting was founded in 2000 and has worked with over 200 ministries from across the United States and from over twenty other countries. We have secured nearly $100 million in funding from every imaginable type of funding source and have an average $10 Return On Investment (ROI) for every $1 clients invest in our services.
