Living Stewardship

We know that Christian stewardship involves giving back to God from all that God has given us - giving from our time, our talents, and our treasure.

This conference will help us identify the resources of our lives that God has lavished on each one of us - as individuals and as congregations - and present ways we can commit those resources to God.


Keynote speaker is the Rt. Rev. Greg Rickel

 Rickel is Bishop of the Diocese of Olympia, Washington, a diocese in which stewardship is central to its mission.


Workshop topics will include:

The Role of Clergy in Stewardship: preaching & teaching stewardship

Teaching and preparing for end of life

Financial focus for vestries and bishop's committees

Sharing Christ's love through world mission

Annual giving with the New Consecration Sunday campaign

Caring for God's creation through environmental stewardship

Assessing the needs of your community

Assessing the skills, talents, and abilities of your congregation

Sharing stewardship through social media
