Stewardship Matters: T-Minus and counting

T-Minus and counting
Cynthia McChesney

Welcome to the (soft) launch of our new diocesan "school"! Check out this new learning management system that will provide leaders in the diocese with helpful educational content, all for free, and all available 24/7 at your convenience!

We're starting out by offering 2 classes in Stewardship perfect for this time of year. The first is an all new class called Your Annual Pledge Campaign Review, which walks through a 4-step process that can help Stewardship teams analyze learnings from last fall's campaign and put what they learn to work, right now.

The second class is Narrative Budgeting for Stewardship, which features several videos that came out of a workshop on Narrative Budgeting that Paul Shackford (retired Diocesan CFO and member of the Stewardship Teaching Team) and I recorded last summer. This class also includes a printable workbook. Narrative Budgeting is an excellent project to take on this time of year so even if you saw that workshop before--but didn't go ahead and build a narrative budget--you should check it out, and share with others in your congregation.

Each class is broken up into manageable "bytes," so they're easy to dive into. They include a combination of short videos, slides, PDFs, and other content. And it's all free for anyone in the Diocese.
