This workshop is designed to build and train a team of people - lay leaders and professional staff - to support the annual pledge campaign in your congregation.Dori Thexton

Teams of five or more from each congregation who will support and run the pledge campaign will spend the morning:

  • Exploring generosity as a spiritual practice
  • Imagining what their congregation would look like if it was truly generous
  • Examining obstacles to creating the culture of generosity in their congregation
  • Creating ways to enable members to experience the joys and rewards of being generous
  • Learning about the vital link between mission and generosity

It is crucial that the teams be large enough to ensure success in bringing their experiences and knowledge home, hence the requirement of 5 or more. It is also very important that a key staff member – either minister or another professional staff member – be part of the team, since staff involvement in creating the culture of generosity is essential.

There will be time during the day for the teams to work together on plans for their own congregations, as well as times for networking, sharing and inspiring each other.

The fee is $30 per person.
