    Episode 4: Interview with Jim Sheppard

    Episode 4: Interview with Jim Sheppard

    Today we want to be encouraged and enlighten by listening in to a special interview. 

    Jim Sheppard is CEO & Principal of Generis, a consulting firm passionate about helping churches inspire and cultivate generosity through giving development, coaching, and strategy.
    After college, Jim passed the CPA exam and pursued a career as a financial executive. Though he grew up in the church, Jim was not a believer until he was 28. That part of his life intersected with his business life in 1991 when he thought he might be called to the pastorate. This came at a time when he was at a very high level in a major financial services company. After an intense spiritual period in his life, Jim realized that was not where God was calling him. Seven months later through a corporate buyout and a series of providentially inspired events, Jim moved from the corporate world to giving development for churches and ministry organizations.
    Jim is a student of generosity and is passionate about spreading it throughout the Church. For the last 27+ years, he has devoted his life to coaching pastors especially in navigating the resource limitations that restrict their ministry potential. Jim understands the financial challenges that churches face today; annual giving, debt, capital projects, and planned giving. He is a positive force in bridging these needs with the power of spiritually motivated stewardship. Cumulatively, Jim has partnered with his clients to raise over $1.7 billion for local church ministry. Jim is a frequent writer and speaker on generosity and ministry funding. He is co-author of Contagious Generosity: Creating A Culture Of Giving In Your Church.
    Jim and his wife, Nancy, live in the Atlanta, GA area and they have two married daughters. He is actively involved in his church where he serves as an elder and provides guidance to the Generosity Ministry Team

    Episode 2: Web Reporting for Executive Directors

    Episode 2: Web Reporting for Executive Directors

    Today's episode is pulled from a Webinar created in 2021 that is SO relevant and needed for Non-Profit Executive Directors and even Executive Pastors: The Section of the Webinar was called "Your Reports are Lying to you!"
    It helps eliminate passing data up from those below to the board of directors and having important information ignored. Selling a report that was built to show success not necessarily facts. Stop having needless "Vanity Reporting" laid on your desk and wasting valuable time finding the information you really want.
    In a day when data is everywhere... learn how to find... or better yet.. ask for the INFORMATION you need to find if your web efforts are bringing in RIO.
    We discuss how to measure online projects and learn to make reporting decisions BEFORE the project starts.
