BUILDING A CULTURE OF GENEROSITY is a stewardship program that guides congregations through their fall stewardship appeals.  It deepens and expands a congregation’s current stewardship outreach and communication. 


Who is presenting?  This is an opportunity offered through the NJ Synod and in partnership with Rev. Mike Ward, author of ‘Abundance: Creating a Culture of Generosity.’  This is an enhanced version of the same fall seminar that was so successful and offered last fall.


How does it work?  Six zoom sessions of your own choosing (i.e., morning, noon or night) held at convenient times from late August through November along with customizable stewardship templates, electronic platform for access and meetings with Rev. Mike Ward form the core of the content.  For more information click here.


How good is it?  Twenty-two NJ Synod congregations participated last fall reporting stabilized if not increased giving.  Many congregations had donors who helped with a challenge gift adding energy to their appeal.  For one testimony go to https://youtu.be/KQ2PaZbuIog.
