Event Details

This new webinar series will help pastors explore how we can keep generosity as a key ingredient in the recipe for making faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. Led by Rev.  Ken Sloane, Discipleship Ministries' director of stewardship and connectional ministries, these four sessions are scheduled every other Tuesday morning beginning on March 28 (April 11, 25 and May 9). We are hoping pastors will register for all and attend, or watch the recordings for the ones they can't make. We will start off the series exploring the tension that exists in many places in the church about what is the business of stewardship: raising funds, or raising generous disciples. We ask people who start the discipleship journey to support the church with prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness; but when we talk disciple-making systems, giving and generosity are an afterthought. Generous giving is a key part of disciple-making.
