Givelify at Changes Can Happen: Summit Conversations 2015

This week Givelify was pleased to present at Changes Can Happen: Summit Conversations 2015. Held at the exclusive Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, the week-long event drew pastors and lay church leaders from across the country.

Changes Can Happen is a project of Dr. Walter Thomas Scott of New Psalmist Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland. The group holds several meetings throughout the year to give pastors and lay leaders a chance to discuss and learn about leadership, goal setting, and other vital skills.

Givelify was invited to present at this event to help introduce our mobile giving app for churches and nonprofits. Attendees included Bishop T.D. Jakes, Bishop Dale C. Bronner and Dr. John Townsend of the Townsend Institute.

Pastor William H. Curtis (Mt. Ararat Baptist Church), Pastor Raymond Walker (Greater Paradise Worship Center), and Odell Dickerson (COO, New Psalmist Baptist Church) voiced their support for Givelify, as you’ll see in this short video.

Pastor William H. Curtis

The last two months our giving has gone up 20%. We’ve got bad weather in Pittsburgh in January and February, but my offerings don’t have to suffer.

Pastor Raymond Walker

The members love it. It’s boosted our giving 20-30%. It beats credit cards, it beats over the table giving. It’s blowing everything out of the water.

Odell Dickerson

Givelify is the most convenient app out there for giving in the church.
