Choose the ONE session that works in your life. August 10 and September 13 (online), September 21 (in person at St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Eden Prairie, MN). Register here today!
Using tried and true methods from fundraising experts and stewardship leaders, this brand new digital resource created through a partnership of the seminary’s Stewardship Leaders Program and Church Anew will help congregations from the beginning to the end of a stewardship campaign.
This worship and spiritual practice series will help people of faith unpack some of what they have heard about money (and generosity), reflect on how God might be calling them to use all of their money (not just the portion they give away), and discern how people of all ages might participate in God’s mission in their congregation through financial generosity.
Seminary students: Use the code SEM50 at checkout and get $50 off our Stewardship in a Box resources! (this makes online free and $10 for in-person at St. Andrew to cover some of the cost of lunch).
