On February 28, 2013, people from 35 congregations in the diocese gathered to talk about stewardship and to share their experiences. Among the 55 who attended were current and former stewardship chairs, vestry members, clergy, and others.
The evening included: Bible study; table discussions of what works best in congregational stewardship programs; a presentation on year-round stewardship programs; table discussions of how year-round programs might be started in congregations; a presentation about planned giving; and distribution of a booklet including stewardship resources.
Certain documents from the event can be seen by clicking on the above attachments.
Stewardship Evening Handout.pdf is a booklet that includes information discussed that evening as well as a sample year-round stewardship model and an extensive list of stewardship resources.
Feedback on the evening was very positive. Suggestions for future stewardship discussions should be forwarded to Paul Shackford, CFO.
