A thoughtful look at the why behind stewardship….
as well as the “what” and “how.”
Two dates! Tuesday, October 10 and Tuesday, October 17, 2017 @ 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Locations in each conference!
Does your congregation wrestle with motivating people to share time, talent and money (treasure)? Is it difficult to get them to see this is for God’s work both in your local context and for the life of the world? If so, you’ll want to participate in “Why Stewardship?”, a ninety minute online, interactive learning event using Zoom technology. We’ll begin with stewardship shaped by the “why”: God’s dream that our lives and our world would be healthy and flourish! We’ll end looking at the “what” and “how,” especially ways to focus your “annual campaign.” The event will feature Bishop Jon Anderson, Steve Oelschlager*, and Larry Strenge.
Join us in your conference location! (see schedule/location below). All gatherings begin at 6:30 sharp! Closing prayer/sending by 8:00 p.m.
This zoom conference is for pastors, other rostered leaders, and lay leaders–especially council, stewardship and finance leaders.
Cost? Only your time invested…as well as ideas generated!
