MBA Lunch & Learn: Building an Effective Legacy Ministry
October 3, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
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.
