Nashville, TN – The GCFA Connectional/External Relations teams are announcing that Vanco has renewed its ministry partnership with GCFA. Vanco, through Vanco Faith, has built new services and enhanced existing tools to help churches, including a free smartphone app. By putting the time and investment in advanced eGiving options, Vanco can work with churches to find eGiving plans that fit the individual church’s needs. Vanco can offer churches giving tools that help track donations, keep members connected, and provide different giving platforms for ministry supporters.
GCFA has had a vetted relationship with Vanco for nearly 20 years. In this time span, more than 3,000 United Methodist churches and ministries have used the giving platforms that have grown from “how to receive checks” to the latest electronic giving platforms. The Vanco giving platforms integrate with multiple church management software providers so churches are not required to change the software. Vanco is committed to making sure each church that partners with Vanco is set up for success as they utilize online giving.
All UMC churches that sign up with Vanco by November 30 will receive personalized one-on-one onboarding with a Vanco eGiving specialist, an offer valued at $500.

The dedicated implementation specialist will assist the church through three one-to-one training sessions to personalize the church’s online giving page that will focus on highlighting church missions, create communication to share with members using customizable marketing materials, and more.
“Vanco is very excited again to partner with GCFA. We’ve enjoyed this partnership for many years as we achieve our aim of helping those who enrich their communities. UMC churches do amazing work during difficult periods, and they are continuing that work in new and innovative ways to support their community. Vanco is happy to introduce new tools, including our church community smartphone app, to United Methodist churches. Our online giving tools help UMC churches thrive financially and succeed in their ministries – whether congregations gather in person or virtually,” said Shawn Boom, CEO of Vanco.
