ECFA will host a pair of live, hour-long webinars created to help participants tell others what God is doing in their organizations and understand the future of mobile-giving based donations.
The online/telephone webinars “Telling the Good Story,” set for May 24, and “Trends in Mobile Giving,” slated for July 17, will begin at 1 p.m. EDT.
“God is moving powerfully through the work of churches and faith-based nonprofits. We want to empower these groups to share their stories and feature them on our website and in our literature,” says Dan Busby, ECFA president. “Also, more and more mobile giving is being used to help donors support a ministry. The mobile giving webinar will help ministry leaders benefit from this growing trend.”
“Telling the Good Story” will discuss three essentials of a compelling story, which will equip churches and parachurch groups to share their own stories. Featured speakers include officers from the leadership development group Strengthening Leaders L3C: Bill Frisby, CEO/founder, and Dave Rippey, senior partner. The webinar also will feature sales coach Dan Seidman, an internationally recognized speaker, consultant and trainer and CEO of Got Influence?
The “Trends in Mobile Giving” webinar will feature a trio of speakers that includes Mark Jones, vice president and senior banking consultant at Evangelical Christian Credit Union (ECCU). Jones, who has served in the banking industry and at ECCU for more than 25 years, specializes in helping nonprofits focus on effective financial management. Also speaking is Cathi Linch, financial operations leader and treasurer of LifeChurch.tv, a multi-site church with nationwide campuses, including one campus that meets entirely on the Internet. Rounding out this panel is entrepreneur, humanitarian, author and adviser Atul Tandon, whose work has impacted consumer banking, e-commerce, and humanitarian relief and development.
Continuing education credits are available through the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and the National Association of Church Business Administration (NACBA). Registration.
