As many of you know by now, the Bishop's Office has partnered with the College for Bishops to bring powerful stewardship training to set up parishes for success this fall. Beginning September 8, this intensive, five-week, customized conference will be held online via Zoom.
The response to Project Resource from our congregations has been tremendous! We have over 80 registrations, and I know many of you are excited about taking advantage of this unique opportunity, especially this year when we know how important our annual campaign will be.
Still, I know that there are a few folks out there who have planned to sign up eventually and just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Well, the “yet” is here! The deadline for final registration is this Friday, August 20. For the registration form, click here.

The Bishop’s Office is making Project Resource’s intensive training program available to parishes in the diocese at no cost. All costs of speakers, materials, and follow-up coaching to participants after the course trainings are covered.
Who should sign up? Many churches have signed up a team, which is recommended. Others have signed up one representative, either lay or clergy. That’s fine too!
At the completion of the series, you’ll have:
- A step-by-step plan for implementing your 2021 fall annual campaign
- A year-round stewardship calendar
- Hands-on training on how to make personal invitations
- Understanding generational and individual donor motivations
- Cultural and technological strategies appropriate for today’s context
You should also know that other dioceses have offered Project Resource to their parishes at the reduced cost of $250-500/per individual. Because we believe this training is so important and so needed this year, we are underwriting the program for you to enable every church to be able to take advantage.
