How Pastors Influence Member Giving

Worshippers who are more theologically conservative, more regular attendees, more committed to their community’s welfare and more interested in reaching the unchurched are more likely to give 10 percent or more of their earnings to their church. In addition, a key predictor of church giving at 10 percent or more is having a pastor who spends more of her or his time engaged in traditional ministry activities: evangelism, administration, preaching and worship leadership. Read the following data from the U.S. Congregational Life Survey about who gives and why.
