Congregations are invited to explore the findings, data and implications of the 2013 Congregational Economic Impact study.
William Enright, director of Lake Institute on Faith & Giving at Indiana University School of Philanthropy, and Aimée Laramore, associate director of the institute, lead participants in a look at the key findings of this survey.
Workshop facilitators review the study and focus on the implications for the future of congregations. They explore with participants:
- the challenges of inflation for congregational life
- the importance of being realistic and proactive about congregational finances
- legacy gifts and the role of church endowments
- the pastor as leader and its implications for congregational finances
- tools by which to navigate the new landscape
- generational issues in giving and fundraising
- the importance of saying “thank you"
The workshop cost is $30 per person (or $25 per person for congregational teams of three or more registered together). The fee includes breakfast, lunch and a copy of the book Stewardship for Vital Congregations by Anthony B. Robinson .
This workshop is limited to Indiana congregations.
