Cultivating Generous Congregations
May 20, June 8, and June 15, 2023
We invite you and your ministry team to participate in a seminar experience that could change the way you and your congregation approach giving and generosity. Cultivating Generous Congregations (CGC) is an interactive seminar—offered on a contract basis in partnership with denominational or network organizations—demonstrating how pastors and ministry leaders can unearth and energize congregational generosity by exploring the significant and necessary steps to creating lasting cultural change within a congregation.
Interactive segments of CGC explore theology, the role of adaptive leadership, fiscal transparency and the importance of donor care, with action steps to impact the generosity exploration and experience for both laity and clergy.
Who should attend:
CGC is designed for congregational teams of 3-5 individuals – clergy, lay leaders, administrators, stewardship committees, and fundraisers who are directly involved in congregation-wide decisions.
