Friday session for Ministers: Preaching and Teaching Stewardship 

Cultivating Abundance: Finding our Way to Enough

Guest speaker: Reverend Lee Hull-Moses

It feels like money is tight everywhere — in our personal budget, and in the offering plate. Can we ask our congregations to give more when we’re feeling so stretched ourselves? Or maybe, if we’re honest, we know that we’re pretty lucky: we’ve got food to eat and clothes to wear and a safe place to live. But all around us, the culture tells us we need more. Where’s the line between not enough and too much? Can we trust in the good news of God’s abundance and find our way to enough?

Join us as we explore ways to cultivate a mindset of abundance in ourselves, our families, our congregations, and our communities.


Saturday session for Ministers and Church Leaders: Church Stewardship

21st-Century Stewardship: Technological advances in congregational stewardship

Guest Speaker: Adam Copeland, Director of Center for Stewardship at Luther Seminary

Join us as we learn about Crowdfunding, Text Giving, and Digital Fundraising, Oh My!
