Stewardship: What’s Old, What’s New, What’s Right for You
In a culture that demands customization and personalization, only the church would assume that a Millennial and a Baby Boomer give in the same way, for the same reasons. The old practice of one-size-fits-all stewardship simply doesn’t work anymore. Congregations are recognizing generational differences and developing stewardship practices that invite different groups to live generous lives. This presentation will highlight these differences and suggest ways to grow your congregation’s stewardship ministry by creating different strategies for the various groups in your congregation. Together, let’s find creative ways to reach the different audiences present in your congregation.
