The gift of an enthusiastic leader

One Great Hour of Sharing Header

When it comes to One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS), a leader’s enthusiasm is a gift in itself. Research shows church members give significantly more when their leaders share their excitement and passion for a Special Offering.

Consider these ideas to involve your members & inspire them to give:

  • Download the Leader’s Guide, with all sorts of resources to help you build excitement for this Offering season, including a sample pastor letter, blog post content, newsletters, and stories of OGHS’s impact around the world
  • Set a goal for your church, and publicly track your progress towards meeting it
  • Plan a special church service highlighting the OGHS ministries
  • Encourage the energy and creativity of your youth by involving them in coin box projects, music suggestions or skits, and handing out bulletin inserts
  • Host a church rummage sale or pitch-in, with proceeds going to the OGHS Offering
