Stewardship Seminars

Would you like to learn about sound principles of Christian stewardship and how they can be applied to increase your congregation’s financial stewardship?  The Mission, Communication, and Stewardship Committee of Shenango Presbytery and the Congregational Development and Leadership Unit of Beaver-Butler Presbytery have recently authorized the creation of a joint presbytery Stewardship Team  to conduct “Developing Generous Congregations” Seminars for pastors and congregational leaders.  This Stewardship Team will be staffed by the Rev. Dr. A. Gary Angleberger, former Associate for Stewardship and Communication in the Synod of the Trinity.  The “Developing Generous Congregations Seminars” will have a follow-up component in which participating churches will receive on site help in working on stewardship development within their congregation.  The first “Developing Generous Congregations Seminar” is projected for late August or early September.   If you want to receive more information and enrollment* requirements contact your presbytery office by phone, 724-528-1610, or e-mail, office@shenango.org, by Friday, July 26.

*Enrollment in the “Developing Generous Congregations Seminar” will be limited in order for the Stewardship Team to be able to follow up with each participating church.
