Stewardship Summit – Edmonton, AB

Posted by | | No Comments

Many churches are asking how to encourage a culture of generosity within their church. Join us on October 27th, 8:30AM to 12:30PM to discover proven and practical ways to re-ignite the flame of excitement for the future of your church.

Join us to discover proven and practical ways to encourage a culture of generosity within your congregation.

• Why and how do people give of their time and treasure?
• How has consumerism affected giving?
• How to recruit passionate leadership for your church.
• Things you should STOP doing.

It is highly recommended that the church send a group of members, especially those in a leadership position, and those who have a passion for stewardship. During the workshop, the participants will work with the group from their own church to develop an outline of a multi-year plan to create a culture of generosity within your congregation. 

No charge for all participants, lunch included!

RSVP by October 22, 2018 to info@csservices.ca
