Is Your Church Generous? Join the Thrivent Financial Generous Churches Film Festival!


Has your creative team ever produced a video that you thought: “this is too good not to share outside of our church?” Leadership Network is giving churches an opportunity to do just that (and perhaps win some $ too)!

Coming May 19 (at 1 pm EST), Leadership Network has partnered with Thrivent Financial to present an online film festival featuring short videos on the topic of generosity – the giving of money, time, assistance – however people have shared with others.

We are not asking churches to create anything new (although there’s no reason that they can’t!).  We are looking for audience-capturing, innovative pieces that churches have used to encourage and remind people about being generous. Here are the primary areas/categories that we will be considered:

  • Capital Campaigns/Giving Initiatives
  • End of Year “Asks”
  • Special Projects
  • Sermon Support (less than 5 minute snippets from preaching on generosity)
  • Promos for Financial Peace University, Crown or other stewardship offerings
  • “Thank You for Giving” pieces
  • Volunteer Recruitment and Appreciation
  • Christmas, Easter, Holiday appeals

This will be a great opportunity for churches to see what others are doing to encourage generosity among their people. There will be prizes totaling $5,000 for the best video submissions and they must be uploaded by March 20. Please contact Todd Rhoades at [email protected] for more information.
