Stewardship Workshops and On-Site Facilitation

February 15, 2018 Diocesan Stewardship Webinar

Help! Aiding Your Diocese with Low-Cost Stewardship Resources (for Diocesan Directors)

Feb 15, 2018 1:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

"Can you help me with stewardship ministry at my parish?"
"We are running an event - do you have any advice?"
"We are drowning in debt - can you help us with a capital campaign?"

These are questions that you get every week from pastors and committee chairs in your diocese. And although you'd like to hold each of their hands through the process of building a robust stewardship ministry, it's not always possible given all the responsibilities on your plate. In this webinar, we will look at low-cost and no-cost resources to which you can direct congregational leaders in your area who are in need of a dynamic system to dramatically increase annual giving and/or prepare for a capital campaign. Statistics on current church giving (What % parishes do not have annual campaign

We will look at our research-based strategies for supporting parishes in:

  • Running an initial annual campaign
  • Increasing annual giving
  • Planning for a capital campaign
  • Building a planned giving program

With your registration we will share our www.StewardshipSystem.org portal with you at no cost and send you our e-book "How to Run a Stewardship-based Parish Capital Campaign".

​March 1, 2018 Stewardship Webinar

We have a free webinar coming up 3/1/18:

Build a Champion Team: A Stewardship Committee Game Plan
Time/Date: March 1, 2018 1PM CST

"The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.” – Babe Ruth

Stewardship is a team effort. And just like a sports team, your stewardship team needs a diverse group of players with varying skill sets and a commitment to your common goals. In this webinar , we'll share 25 years worth of success stories and disasters from watching stewardship committees win and fail (ouch!). Whether you're undertaking a one-time fundraising event, an annual campaign, or preparing for a capital campaign, here's what you need to know about building a team that will get you to the hall of fame.

Topics we will address:

  • The role of the Stewardship Committee
  • The importance of shared leadership
  • MVP: Identifying key-players to invite to serve
  • Resources to share with your committee
  • Success stories and lessons learned

With your registration we'll send you our checklist guide to building your stewardship committee.

About our workshops

Church Development stewardship workshops are free, on-site workshops tailored to a church’s specific needs on planning and managing a church capital campaign. We can discuss a range of topics, from capital stewardship campaign needs and debt retirement to annual giving and long-term stewardship education.

These workshops are generally two to four hours long, depending on the needs of our audience. We work with church leadership, building committees, Session Elders, Finance committees and, sometimes, entire congregations during our workshops. We want to share as much information as we can with you.

We’ll tailor our workshop information in order to help your church community increase stewardship, build community in order to prayerfully discern whether a stewardship-based capital
campaign is the next step for your church.
