Estate Planning Awareness Week – 4 Ways We’d Love to Serve You

“Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.”
Proverbs 15:22

What comes to your mind when you think of Estate Planning? While some may view it as an arduous task, we have helped many people who experience estate planning as a deeply meaningful act of service and worship. For friends of Langham Partnership, estate planning is a way to make one of the most joyful, generous, and strategic gifts while also providing peace of mind and demonstrating care for loved ones.

We know that Langham donors like you share a passion to train leaders for the church where it is growing the fastest. We also know you are generous and long to be a wise steward of the Lord’s resources. As one donor has shared, “It is a joy for me to make a legacy gift to Langham because of the Kingdom goals Langham represents and how comprehensive the vision is.”

One of the greatest joys of our work is walking with people just like you through the process of making plans that align with their deepest values and passions. We have been blessed to serve scores of families. We would love to serve you.

Four ways we would love to serve you:

  1. Share Ideas

How do you get started with your estate and charitable planning journey? How much might you give to your loved ones or to ministry? Does it matter which assets are given to ministry? Should you share your plans with your children or loved ones? These are just some questions you may have. Because we have learned from many conversations with people just like you, we have ideas that we would love to share.

  1. Provide Resources

We have free resources available to help you! From our Planned Giving Guide and our “Strategic Giving Checklist” to videos that help with family dynamics or knowing when to update your will, we have a variety of free tools and guides that we would be happy to share with you.

  1. Offer Encouragement

Many people have the best intentions of making or updating their plans but need some encouragement along the way. It would be our privilege to provide you with support and join you in prayer in a way that helps you complete your plans and brings peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

  1. Connect you with a Planner

Because so many of our friends can benefit from charitable planning, we have partnered with a network of Christian attorneys and planners. Like you, these individuals love the Lord, the global church, and wise stewardship. If you would like to learn more about charitable planning strategies, we would love to serve you. At no cost to you and with no obligation, a planner will answer your questions with clarity, integrity, and the utmost confidentiality. They can help you make important, God-honoring decisions in an atmosphere of complete confidence and trust.
