Churches develop building funds for a variety of reasons including building new facilities or repair and renovation of existing building(s). Traditional church fund-raising programs for things like children’s and youth programs or local ministries include things like bake sales and selling cookbooks, candy bars, pies or maybe the infamous chicken or BBQ dinner fundraiser.
However, if you are trying to raise funds for new construction or renovations, you would have to sell a LOT of candy bars or BBQ dinners to make even a small dent in a church building fund budget! If your church needs to raise money for its building fund, the most effective fund raising program will be a Member to Member direct funding Make no mistake, no other method is as effective, either financially or spiritually.
If you are looking to raise money to build, repair or renovate your church, no other method that will raise as much money as that of a properly run a Peer to Peer direct funding fundraising campaign, and it’s biblical too!
Pay Me Forward is a Peer to Peer direct funding platform used for Capital Fund Raising – Growing the Church Building Fund
A church building fund for capital projects such as construction, renovation, church planting, or relocation require a great deal of fundraising, something that is all but impossible for the church to accomplish by selling candy bars or chicken dinners. After all, it takes a lot of candy bars or chicken dinners to build or even repair a church building!
When the church is selling a fundraiser product, it is essentially trading a product for cash. Not only would the church have to move a lot of “product” to raise any significant amount of money, there is no spiritual component to fundraising in this manner; it’s just a business transaction that people can feel good about. A truly successful capital fundraising campaign will produce spiritual as well as financial fruit.
If you are looking to raise money for your church’s building fund or other capital expense, you need to look beyond the bake sale and chicken dinners. You need to look for a church fundraising solution that will provide the maximum spiritual and financial benefit! The money you need to build to build or renovate is sitting right in front of you each Sunday!
What is a Pay Me Forward Church Capital Campaign?
A Pay Me Forward Peer to Peer funding campaign is a carefully choreographed, spiritual endeavor that produces spiritual and financial fruit through a dedicated offering above and beyond the current tithes and offerings. A professionally facilitated church capital campaign will typically raise between one and three times the church’s current annual income over a traditional 3-year giving period, all of what can be applied to your building fund.
A Pay Me Forward capital campaign is an important part of every church’s financial strategy to raise money for construction or to retire debt. A biblically based capital campaign will honor God and respect your congregation. A proper church capital campaign will first bear spiritual fruit that leads to increased giving of the members’ time, treasure, and talents in supporting the church’s vision and mission.

There are no two ways about it – in most cases a substantial proportion of funds will come from direct giving from within the congregation. It is interesting to see this work across a number of different churches – often the most generous giving is not from those congregations with the wealthiest demographic. The key issue is whether the congregation are fully behind the vision for the Personal Finance Building Fund
“Fundraising” is proclaiming what you believe in, and proclaiming it in such a way that you offer the other person an opportunity to participate in your vision while building their own vision so it is precisely the opposite of begging.
It is not saying, please, we have a problem, could you help us out? We are saying, we have a vision that is so exciting that we are giving you the opportunity of participating in that vision with the resources that God has given you.”
Between all of life’s distractions and responsibilities lies a desire within each one of us to do something big, to make a difference, and to leave our mark. It is a human thing to want to do a significant thing. Many of us want to leave this world better than we came into it. This should especially be true for those of us who have put our trust in Jesus Christ and are seeking to obey, follow, and represent him.
The Bible clearly teaches that the only way to have a “giant” impact in the lives of others is to be generous in every way with our time, energy, and resources. As Christians, we should hold our possessions loosely and be willing to sacrifice everything because we serve a God who gave everything for us. The Gospel message cannot be understood or applied without a spirit of generosity. One of the defining marks of the very first church in the book of Acts was generosity. Together, through each of their combined efforts of generosity they built a movement ignited by God that still has momentum today. And now it’s our turn to go on a journey together to see how we are to follow the example of Jesus to become generous giants. Let us show you how to fund your dreams.
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.
