Successful Stewardship in Challenging Times
Area: Witness & Worship
Idea: This workshop addresses the challenges of budget in this new economy, making decisions as well as helping skeptical people understand and appreciate the importance of conference apportionments.
Faculty: Dan Brown
Idea: Some congregations see this around them, others don’t – but the homeless and the issues that cause it and keep it from going away are around all of us, all the time. There is a biblical mandate to minister to the poor and outcast and this workshop can introduce the problems, approaches, and tools that heighten awareness and ways the church can proactively get involved.
Faculty: Virginia Tinsley
