Testimony from a GiveThree65 church

“As soon as we launched this new ministry tool in our church, we immediately began to receive funds from inactive members.

Giving back to the Lord is an act of worship and an initiation of ones faith in God.  So I truly believe that this opportunity for them to at least give back to the work of Kingdom of God, is going to result in them turning back to Him with their whole hearts.  Looking forward to seeing them in service after the Lord lifts this plague.”

At The Baptist Foundation of Alabama, we are blessed to be a part of this story.  Glory to God!

“So the churches were strengthened in the faith and grew daily in numbers.” Acts 16:5

MBA Lunch & Learn: Building an Effective Legacy Ministry

 

 

 

 

 

Did you know that roughly 70% of the folks in your congregation will die without a will?  And, of the 30% that do have a will, only 1 in 40 of those have considered this as a stewardship opportunity? This is a travesty… but it certainly doesn’t have to end this way.

Over the past 9 years, we have sought out to equip churches to have a Legacy ministry which enables them to serve their members with professional coaching that helps them get wills and powers of attorney in place. As a result, we have been able to help 784 families put plans in place that provided well for their family and honored their Faith. After working with those families, they committed over $230 million in future gifts to ministries.  About 47% of this is benefiting the churches where the members were already faithful supporters.

On top of this, pastors deal with death in their congregations on a regular basis.  This is a great way to serve their folks with some practical help that they so desperately need and do it from a biblical perspective which is simply missing in the attorney’s office.

Join us to hear a short message about this ministry from Rodney Bledsoe, Chief Development Officer of The Baptist Foundation of Alabama. This event is sponsored by the Montgomery Baptist Association.

Legacy Conversation with Dave Keesling

What does Legacy mean to you?

One dictionary defines it as something handed down from one generation to another. Said in another way, our Legacy is something of our lives that remains once we have left this world. Some might think of Legacy only as
material possessions left to one’s heirs, but Christ tells us it means much more than that.

Could our legacy be all of the ways we affected others with our relationships, expertise and resources during our lifetimes? We are each crafting our Legacy daily. Whether we know it or not and whether we like it our not, the way we live our lives and the choices we make will impact others.

So, what will your Legacy be?

At The Baptist Foundation of Alabama, we are committed to helping Alabama Baptists create a Legacy that will honor not only their families, but also their faith. Please join us as our special speakers help us discover our Legacy impact!

Building an Effective Legacy Ministry

Did you know that roughly 70% of the folks in your congregation will die without a will?  And, of the 30% that do have a will, only 1 in 40 of those have included ministry as a beneficiary? This is a travesty… but it certainly doesn’t have to end this way. 
Over the past 7 years, we have sought out to equip churches to have a Legacy ministry which enables them to serve their members with professional coaching that helps them get wills and powers of attorney in place. As a result, we have been able to help 640 familes put plans in place that provided well for their family and honored their Faith. After working with those familes, they committed over $200 million in future gifts to ministries.  About 50% of this is going directly to the churches where the members were already faithful supporters.  
On top of this, pastors deal with death in their congregations on a regular basis.  This is a great way to serve them with some practical help that they so desparately need and do it from a biblical perspective which is simply missing in the attorney’s office.
Join us to hear a short message about this ministry from Barry Bledsoe, president of The Baptist Foundation of Alabama and Rod Marshall of the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home and Family Ministries.  Afterwards, Dave Keesling, co-founder of Philanthrocorp will discuss some biblical principles of estate planning and how it applies to each of us. This event is co-sponsored by The Alabama Baptist Children’s Homes and Family Ministries. Breakfast will be provided.
