Join Outlook Editor/Publisher Teri McDowell Ott in a conversation with Mark Elsdon, an entrepreneur, nonprofit executive, author and PC(USA) pastor who focuses on the intersection of money and meaning.

In this webinar, Terispeaks with Mark about Gone for Good? Negotiating the Coming Wave of Church Property Transition. Edited by Mark, this new book highlights “what we are losing as church property usage changes at an unprecedented speed and scale, and [helps] us imaging the innovative possibilities that can emerge.”

This curated collection includes voices from across the United States that:

  • engage the value churches have as community centers,
  • explore how church and civic leaders can partner to reimagine properties,
  • ask questions about how we should treat church land that was stolen from Indigenous peoples,
  • and consider the role philanthropy can play in property transitions.

Mark speaks to the purpose of the book and answers questions.
