This one-day clergy gathering to which all small church pastors in the Texas Annual Conference are invited will be held in three locations throughout the Conference on August 22, 23, & 24. At the workshop you will learn...
  • To reclaim and reconnect with a personal vision and mission for ministry
  • How broken expectations may discourage leadership in generosity
  • Best and worst practices in stewardship and generosity
  • To recruit the right generosity team
There will also be a session on personal finance. Attendees will learn how to establish an account with EY, a financial planning service offered by Wespath free of charge, and will be asked to complete a pre-assessment survey to determine their level of financial literacy. They will be guided through the use of the EY website during that session, in addition to learning of other personal financial tools.

The second phase of Growing in Generosity engages lay members of the congregation through the recruitment of Generosity Teams. Training for these teams will take place at two different locations throughout the conference during weekends in October and November. Information is available on the website listed above.
