Life has changed dramatically in the last few weeks and that change is still unfolding. In the midst of this change, people are needing the peace and comfort provided by faith in God. At the same time, as our normal patterns are upended and the nation is struggling economically, we worry about financial resources for our ministries. It is critically important now that we focus on how we tell our story of impact, how we invite people to generosity, how we envision a future where our congregations are more important and vital than ever.
We have secured a one-hour virtual opportunity to explore these topics with Rev. Mike Ward, CFRE and author of Abundance: Creating Cultures of Generosity. Rev. Ward is a partner with the firm GSB, and regularly consults with many Greater Milwaukee Synod congregations on the topics of stewardship and mission.
Join us on Wednesday April 1 from 10-11 AM for a one-hour virtual workshop with Mike. He will share tangible ideas for responding during this crisis and help you put in place the infrastructure to keep generosity flowing to your congregations. Mike will also point out messaging that you should avoid during this time. A portion of the program will be dedicated to questions from participants. This workshop is suggested for pastors, stewardship leaders, council members and others engaged in congregational leadership.
