I’m hoping you can help me promote a couple stewardship opportunities that I have coming up for fostering healthy Stewardship in communities of faith and ministries. Please share this information widely in your areas, and with your people!
First, I am running a pilot of Called to be the Church: The Journey just for camps & community ministries. Here is a blurb that you can put in your bulletins and newsletters:
Stewardship Education for Community Ministries
Whether a camp, inner-city ministry, chaplaincy, or some other form of Community Ministry, spend some focused time developing skills to find new supporters and better engage current donors. Join others in this special cohort of the Stewardship Best Practices module of Called to be the Church: The Journey for a 3-week program and dig into the best practices for stewardship specifically for your context. This module runs Tuesday October 26, November 2 and November 9 from 6-8pm PST with individual support sessions following to create and implement a plan to increase your year-end donations. To register or for more information contact Vicki Nelson.
Second, I have 2 more cohorts open for congregations to take the training. This will be the last chance in 2021. Here is a blurb for that:
Get focused on Generosity & Gratitude
Is your congregation ready to focus on your mission?
Are you interested in inviting people to live more generously?
Do you want to find creative ways to feel and express gratitude?
If you answered “Yes!” to any of these questions, you are ready to join The Journey.
Grow your congregation’s stewardship muscle with a 4 week+ online program. Communities of Faith put together a learning team and work alongside a few other congregations to learn about stewardship best practices and build a plan to execute them in your context. Registrations are now being accepted for cohorts starting in October. Contact Vicki Nelson for more details.
