The Importance Of a Co-Visitor


By Glendon Smith

Personal visitation is the most effective way to ask donors to consider gifts of a sacrificial nature. It dignifies the potential donor and the purpose of the campaign. Sharing information and responding to questions creates ownership and consensus.

Use A Team Approach (if applicable). Experience shows that teams may get closer attention, more serious consideration and better results than an individual. Discussion flows more freely and questions about the church and the plans are more easily answered. Be sure to plan your presentation and know who will ask the donor to ‘consider’ a gift.

While there are instances when only one visitor is appropriate, usually having a co-visitor is the best practice.

This team method has many advantages; such as continued training of one another, increases confidence, holds one another accountable, more consistency, and helps to stay on track or focused.

The Bible speaks of sending them out two by two. So this idea goes back thousands of years.
