At this time of the year, Bishop Mike often reminds pastors and deacons to go ahead and sketch out tentative vacation and continuing education in 2018. Of course, you can always shift and change dates, but it is easy to end up at the end of next year and realize you didn’t take all your vacation and continuing education.
As you consider continuing education opportunities, consider the stewardship conference called Pathways to Generosity, April 3-5, at King of Glory Lutheran Church- Dallas, Texas.
The conference is an ecumenical training that will include workshops in a variety of areas:
- How to Ask
- Financial Health of Congregations
- Developing a Communications Plan for Stewardship
- Social Media and Stewardship
- Best Financial Practices
- Preaching Stewardship
Keynote speakers include Bishop Pedro Suarez of the Florida-Bahamas Synod and the Rev. Katie Hayes of the Disciples of Christ.
Registration fee: $275
