Faced with escalating operating costs and shrinking attendance, it’s no surprise when pastors and other church leaders put meeting this year’s budget ahead of what God is or could do in parishioner’s hearts through their giving. This webinar will provide strategies for re-visioning your church’s stewardship program to encourage Christ-followers as generous, joyful stewards of the abundance entrusted to them, including:

 

·        Overcoming reluctance to talk about money in church;

·        Asking for money in ways that grow givers’ hearts; and  

·        Using data to encourage and celebrate generous giving by parishioners.  

Because this webinar contains a PowerPoint, you will need to see the presentation. You cannot join in by only a phone call. If you don't have a camera on your computer for us to see you, you will still be able to participate by typing questions/comments in the chat bar.
