Stewards by Design conference is designed to help congregations discover how to nurture generous giving and expand their ministry. Participants explore how stewardship is not just a financial matter but is a spiritual matter concerned with all aspects of life. The team will begin to develop a plan designed for their unique congregation as they learn how to:
- Encourage people to invest more generously in the mission to which God calls us
- Move from budget-driven to mission-driven congregation
- Move beyond a survival mentality that focuses on conserving, holding, protecting and preserving and discover ways to nurture faithful giving and abundant living
- Unlock the twelve keys to an effective church
- Make generous giving an ongoing, joyful congregational experience.

Stewards By Design is about so much more than financial stewardship. It helps congregations explore the overall mission and ministry they are doing and connects their vision for their congregation with the resources to do it. It is an energizing, exciting and productive time for the congregations who attend.
Congregational leaders have found this an invaluable time to listen to God together as they dream about the ministry of their congregation.
Note: We are open to other groups attending. In the past we have had a camp board attend. The participants found it was helpful for the camp as well as the congregations they attend. For more information and to apply to attend, click here.
4 participants from each church will learn how to nurture generous giving.
