"We were successful in raising over three times our annual income. But beyond this financial victory, our church experienced a spiritual awakening and growth never before seen."
"It has been exciting to see the work God has done in the hearts and lives of our people though our campaign. I saw God work in the hearts of people that had not allowed God to do so in the past."
We believe people want to support their church's building (renovation, debt retirement) project. This is especially so when the need is urgent, when they have caught the vision of a greater purpose, and when they are not forced to do so.
TLC trusts your people to make appropriate decisions for themselves. The campaign does not use heavy-handed measures. Thus, all commitments are on a response basis in a non-threatening atmosphere.
The TLC approach is a soft and gentle approach designed to help people address issues on their own, with the proper understanding of stewardship. Our track record of exceptional results verifies that people will give a lot more than they will allow someone else to take from them. And they will feel much better about it.
TLC's philosophy is to lead people to their highest potential through a process we call a "Personal Stewardship Journey." People respond to this approach with eagerness because they really do want to give, even if it means working through some issues in their own lives. The Personal Stewardship Journey is the best way for people to make their commitments of sacrificial giving for their church's project. This process involves both the teaching and studying of stewardship principles in the Scriptures, as well as each person and family personally answering four heart-searching questions.
The impressive track record of TLC Ministries has been achieved over the years through both hard work and a sensitivity to the people of each church. We make every effort not to drive, manipulate, or pressure your people into doing something they do not want to do. We realize that every decision to give is first of all a spiritual issue which involves our attitudes. So we address the heart issues of giving first before asking people to consider the amount of their giving.
