Nashville, TN – The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) Connectional and External Relations teams are announcing that Vanco has renewed its ministry partnership with GCFA through 2024. Vanco Faith helps churches thrive by providing online giving tools, giving pages that use a church’s own photos and stories, a church engagement app to keep members connected, and a variety of giving options to encourage giving to church ministries. Vanco Faith offers services to help churches with plans that fit the individual church’s needs. The Vanco giving platform integrates with multiple church management software providers so churches are not required to change software. Churches that use Vanco Faith see an average increase in giving of 26%. Vanco is committed to making sure each church that partners with Vanco is set up for success as they utilize online giving.

Vanco provides services to more than 3,000 United Methodist churches and ministries.

“Vanco is pleased to be extending our existing partnership with GCFA as a Ministry Partner for three additional years. We have partnered with GCFA for many years because their focus aligns well with Vanco’s mission to help organizations who are doing tremendous work by enriching the communities they serve. These past many months have been transformational for the ways churches worship and serve their members. This has sparked significant innovations in our online giving platform and church community smartphone app. It has also led us to designing exciting new products we will be bringing to market this fall to make virtual services a more cohesive and engaging church experience,” said Shawn Boom, CEO of Vanco. “We’re excited to introduce these new tools to UMC churches to help them thrive in the new landscape.”
