Raise 3-6 Times Your Weekly Offering: Nelson Searcy Walks You Through Each Critical Step in 5-Month Maximize Your Christmas Offering LIVE Coaching!
A 5-Session Guided Coaching Experience Led Personally by Nelson Searcy to Help You Plan and Conduct a Christmas Offering in Real-Time as You Implement Each Phase Each Month

Dear Renegade Pastor,

I’m inviting you to join me in a unique coaching opportunity that I’ve never offered before. This is an opportunity to be trained step-by-step through one of the most significant giving tools at your disposal.

A well-planned and executed Christmas Offering can enable your church to fully fund your missions efforts and key initiatives for 2023 AND encourage the spiritual growth of your people as the calendar year winds down.

The average person will donate over $240 to charity this season — that should go to your church! By helping your people choose to support your ministry it will not only ensure your church’s Kingdom Impact, but grow your people as well this Christmas season.

I know you may still be feeling the pain from the pandemic and facing a fallout of challenges from the last couple of years. This is your chance to turn that around through an effective Christmas Offering!

Through this real-time coaching network, with five monthly LIVE sessions October – February, I will walk you step-by-step through the process — planning, promotion, collection and follow-up — to help you raise 3-6 times your weekly offering, over and above your regular giving.

You’ll receive high-level, personal attention from me through this network so that you can fully implement this Special Offering process and be able to use it year after year in your church.

And I promise this process is joyful and will not fatigue your people! I’ll also share with you FREE bonus resources during our network including all new files and samples from the Journey’s Special Offering.

See below for the full calendar but don’t worry if you can’t join all sessions live. Each is recorded and will be available to you to access on demand.

Because of the personal attention, space is very limited in this network and it will close soon. Sign up ASAP and I hope to see you online this month!

So, Why Do this Now?

The timing of this network is appropriate with the economic challenges that churches are facing, and our country is facing this year. More than ever this may require proper coaching so that your people celebrate the Christmas Offering. And at the end when it’s over they are more excited than ever to be regular, consistent, proportional and on occasion extravagant givers.

Fair warning on the Christmas Offering coaching, this is only a ONE-TIME network. I don’t expect or plan to do this again. But this is a passion area of mine.

There’s so many other dynamics that I’ve just never really had a chance to unpack that I think these five months will give us the opportunity to explore.

For example:

  • When should you do a Christmas Offering and when should you NOT do a Christmas Offering?
  • What are the reasons for stopping at the end of the year versus extending it into the new year?
  • What are going to be the areas of focus for my Christmas Offering? (a decision area a lot of people mess up on)
  • How do I communicate this to my people in such a way that they understand? (so they give to this Special Offering over and above their regular giving)
  • How does a Christmas Offering raise up new givers and develop current givers with all that rolling into raising the value of stewardship?
  • And since we know that stewardship is discipleship, what place does a Christmas Offering hold in helping people grow in their faith?
  • And of course we’ll get into the nitty gritty and I’ll show you all kinds of samples of letters, envelopes, flyers, commitment cards, follow-up emails. thank you emails, scripts for Sunday and everything else that you need to make it a success! I’ll give you templates that you can just edit and use that have been proven over time.
  • Then we’ll get into some more advanced training about how to maximize matching gifts. For example:
    • What about in-kind gifts like stocks or bonds or property?
    • What about the use of multi-channel promotion including videos that you do as a church or that you recruit from your partners to explain how the offering is going to be used?
    • What you should call the offering — should it be a Christmas Offering? Should it be a Special Offering or should it have a unique name and branding around the offering?

Whatever you can think of that you want to know about the Offering I will answer. If you’ve always wondered how we at the Journey have raised six times our weekly budget through the Special Offering — while not hindering regular giving — then this will be the network for you.

I’m keeping this network very affordable — just $297/month for five months. Your investment is a fraction of the resources and coaching value you will receive (over $5700 value) during this personal, guided coaching experience with me.

If You’re on the Fence, Ask Yourself These Questions?

  • Do you feel like your Christmas Offering process is in that place where it is sustainable and scalable year after year?
  • At this point do you have a written checklist or timeline that can be easily modified year to year? Ideally, so that each year it is less stressful on your staff and you. More exciting for your people and structured for greater impact?
  • Do you feel like the Christmas Offering is baked into your culture and it’s something your people know is coming and get excited about it coming?
  • Have there been areas in your Christmas Offering that need coaching and if solved could lead to even more resources for missions and other areas of the offering?
  • Are there advanced techniques that you would like to learn related to the Christmas Offering?
    (Like how to keep the results of the Christmas Offering in front of people off and on throughout the year so that when this year’s offering technically ends you’re peppering your congregation with good news that will prepare them for next year. Or maybe other more advanced issues like staff accountability or answering the critics or how to properly structure the distribution of the Christian Offering funds because some things may not need to be funded all at once but spread out over the course of the year.)
  • If you’re on the fence about joining, of course there’s no long-term commitment. It’s only a five month network. If you have any questions about what will be covered and you want to chat or ask questions by email, just send an email to
  • Again, this network isn’t for everyone but I’m intentionally keeping this network smaller because of the personalized attention you will receive.
Space is Extremely Limited for this New Network Starting Wednesday, October 26th!
