Stewardship in Uncertain Times

This workshop has passed, but please click one of the links below to listen to the audio recording:


Life has changed dramatically in the last few weeks and that change is still unfolding. In the midst of this change, people are needing the peace and comfort provided by faith in God. At the same time, as our normal patterns are upended and the nation is struggling economically, we know that financial resources are on the minds of our partners and their ministries. It is critically important now that we focus on how we tell our story of impact, how we invite people to generosity, and how we envision a future where our congregations are more important and vital than ever.

To begin this thought process, Siebert Lutheran Foundation is partnering with GSB Partner, Rev. Mike Ward, CFRE, for one-hour virtual workshops to explore stewardship in uncertain times.  Mike is the author of Abundance: Creating a Culture of Generosity published by Fortress Press and a frequent speaker around the country. He launched his professional fundraising career and a $6 million campaign just months before the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and that campaign raised $8.1 million. 

About the Workshop
Mike will share tangible ideas for responding during this crisis and help you put in place the infrastructure to keep generosity flowing to your congregations. He will also point out messaging that you should avoid during this time. A portion of the program will be dedicated to questions from participants. 

Who should join the workshop?

  • Lead Pastors
  • Church Council Presidents
  • Church Stewardship Chairs/Leaders
  • Members of Church Stewardship Committees and others engaged in congregational leadership
