Are you…

  • Afraid to ask congregants to give more than once a year?
  • Doubtful that community members will increase their financial commitments to support the operating budget?
  • Wondering how to develop a 12-month stewardship ministry?
  • Hoping to learn best practices for providing stewardship education and “asking”?

Leadership is a commitment, often challenging us to do things that make us afraid and inviting us to do things differently for the greater good. Stewardship ministry is often the work church leaders ignore because it evokes the most discomfort and presents the most daunting learning curve. But, the change and leadership growth are possible. As leaders, we can grow. We can listen for how others are growing and the ways we can develop as leaders of stewardship and generosity.

Leaders of congregational stewardship ministry practice several key disciplines. From his 10 years of working with pastors and committee leaders to help congregants deepen their financial discipleship, Sean will share the core practices aspiring stewardship leaders need to embrace.

Participants will also:

  • Learn why both spiritual and practical disciplines are needed to foster communities of generous people;
  • Discover the reasons people of all generations give to nonprofits and churches;
  • Be equipped to inspire church members to practice financial discernment with decisions related to the management of possessions, church pledging, and giving priorities.

Who should attend? This webinar is designed to equip pastors, stewardship committees and church elders to learn ways to foster generous communities.
