Give Conference

5 Reasons You Don’t Want to Miss Give Conference

This October, in beautiful Augusta, GA, SecureGive will be hosting our annual conference, tastefully adorned as Give Conference.

Give Conference is a time for pastors and church leaders to enter a space where generosity will be explored and celebrated. Where leaders will be equipped with the practical, all the while experiencing a special time in God’s presence. There are plenty of church conferences out there to choose from, but there is only one Give Conference.

Not sure yet if the Give Conference is something you want to attend? Well, here are 5 (really good) reasons why you need to be there.

1. Give Conference puts more tools in your toolbox.

Going to conferences is an investment. We do not take that lightly. That is why the Give Conference team is fully committed to ensuring that you return to your church, your community, with applicable next steps.

Every speaker and breakout is designed to mobilize you and those you lead.

At Give Conference, we’re going to worship together, laugh together, and be encouraged. But, the event, from beginning to end, will also be saturated with practical ways to build generosity in your church. From culture, to preaching, to leveraging digital tools, to biblical truth, you will receive high-impact content that will make a difference in your ministry. You’ll be challenged to think differently about how you approach giving and generosity.

We saw this play out over and over at Give Conference 2021. Last year Pastor Lawson Clary of 5Point Church in Easley, SC explained the importance of The Church getting involved civically and the best path forward to doing that. 5Point has learned the value of pouring generosity out into their city. When their team has high civic involvement, they’re able to be the first to find needs and meet them. And as they’ve seen play out, their church is full of more generous people because of it.

Of course, this sounds like a great thing to do. But the real benefit was so many people walking away from Give Conference knowing how to actually make it happen.

Last year Dr. David McKinley of Warren Baptist Church in Augusta, GA shared how as leaders we can inspire generosity in others by being the example. But how can you be the example without shining the spotlight on yourself? He unpacked the practical ways he carries that out in his church.

Give Conference will spiritually encourage and equip you, but also add practical tools to your toolbox that you can utilize immediately

2. Prayer is the foundation of Give Conference.

SecureGive is a company built on prayer. It is a company that is committed to prayer. It is a company that prays for you.

Give Conference is no different.

Dr. Marty and Patty Baker, Founders and Owners of SecureGive, started SecureGive almost 20 years ago, fully committing the company to God and committing to build it on a foundation of prayer. It has now become a marquee attribute of the company’s culture.

Our staff and our volunteers have already been pressing in and praying for God’s favor, wisdom, and goodness to be given and increased over all of you.

Coming to Give Conference is one way that you can be certain your personal needs and churchwide needs are expressed and brought before the Lord. Give Conference will have people present to pray with and over you.

3. Valuable networking at Give Conference.

Church work is hard. Rewarding, but hard. We need community. We need each other. Give Conference understands that and works to ensure you have every opportunity to make new friends and connections. Beginning with Monday night, Give Conference will kick things off with an incredible dining experience that will invite you to meet new people right off the bat. Last year, there was so much connection that happened over the course of that evening. Connection that led to leaders sharing ideas and building ministry partnerships.

On into Tuesday, the format of the conference will present plenty of space for church leaders to come together and discuss challenges you’re facing as well as identify those things you all have in common. As you learn from an incredible lineup of speakers, you’ll also gain so much from the church leaders around you.

Networking is one of the pivotal benefits of Give Conference. Don’t miss out. 

4. Give Conference puts generosity on full display.

SecureGive, at the very heart of everything we are and do, is a company founded on generosity. Give Conference has become the most practical place for SecureGive to exercise generosity.

For starters, there are giveaways galore–everything from outdoor grills and stoves to the best personal device technologies available. From there, attendees can win SecureGive perks and services. This is always one of the most talked about pieces from those who have been before.

Servants first. Every volunteer and staffer who will be working at Give Conference has one singular objective, to ensure that your experience is front of mind in all things. You will show up feeling both welcomed and served.

We love good food. Maybe you’re a southerner already or you’re making the trip down south, food is a love language. Give Conference will be serving up the best food you will ever have at a conference. Ever.

5. Give Conference is fun!

At the end of the day, SecureGive loves a good time and Give Conference embodies that and then some. From amazing musical guests to genuine worship to entertainment to belly laughs, Give Conference will become a must attend for you year after year. 

You will learn and be challenged, but you will also be encouraged and have a genuinely good time. Many from Give Conference 2021 are returning and one of the main reasons – they had an absolute blast last year.

You will learn and be challenged, but you will also be encouraged and have a genuinely good time.

Believe me, I have been to A LOT of church conferences. Give Conference is different from them all. 

Give Conference will resource you to build generosity in this new post-pandemic era of church. You’ll be inspired, encouraged, and prayed over. But you’ll also be equipped with practical tools so you can hit the ground running when you get home.
