 Description: Nearly every aspect of the church is touched by its financial resources. So it's vital to track expenses and giving accurately. The method of simply dividing the annual budget by 52 weeks or 12 months to determine if their giving is on track seems completely logical except for one fact — churches do not receive money equally each week or month throughout the year. If your congregation gives most generously at the end of the year, this method of monitoring giving will report through most of the year that you are running behind, even though you may really be on track in relation to your own pattern.
There are three easy steps to getting started with the CGP.
Step 1. View the video instruction session. Lewis Center Director, Dr. Lovett Weems, Jr., explains what a Congregational Giving Profile is and guides you step-by-step through the process of determining your church's CGP.
Step 2. Enter your past three year's giving information and your budget into the CGP template on your computer. The template automatically makes all the necessary calculations to show how much money you should anticipate at each point during the year.
Step 3. Enter your giving each week or month. As the year progresses, the template calculates whether you're ahead or behind for the year based on your own Congregational Giving Profile.
