Growing Generous Givers:  Stewardship 201
Are you ready for the next step? You have been informed and enlightened in Stewardship 101, but now discover how to make it real in your congregation! Stewardship 201 equips you with the tools to take Generous Giving to the next level.

What will you get by participating?

  • Understand your personal theology and objectives for growing your personal generosity.
  • Discover how to complete and apply a Generosity Audit to the stewardship initiatives for your local church.
  • Gain insights as to what is going on with charitable giving in the current economy/culture.
  • Fill your toolbox to grow generous givers with an Annual Worship Plan, Communication Plan, How to customize appeals, and Appropriate Fiscal Reporting.
  • Up, Up & Away with significant donors.  Is it acceptable to treat them differently? Who are they?  What will or will not motivate them?  What are some sample strategies?
  • We Won’t Leave You Stranded: What if I want coaching/mentoring for development and implementation of a strategy?

Stewardship 201 walks through “Next Steps” for Growing Generous Givers.  This will be a working session for local church leaders to develop a customized strategy for their local church.  Stewardship 101 is not required to participate.  Key regional church and conference leaders will be presenters and guide brainstorm/small group dialogue.
