Join Rev. Mike Ward, Certified Fund-Raising Executive (CFRE) and author of "Abundance: Creating a Culture of Generosity" for a practical, deep dive into how to develop and live into a culture of abundance in your congregation. In addition to Mike, you will hear from young pastors who are implementing this culture and experienced pastors who have adjusted their ministry to more effectively develop generosity in their congregations. This conference will leave you feeling that stewardship is significant ministry and is far more about the hearts of your members and the impact of what God is up to in your setting than it is about money. The symposium is sponsored by a Lilly grant and is free for all attendees.
