WHO: Your Congregation Leader for Stewardship, your stewardship team, Council and any others with a desire to delve in

WHAT: Effective special gift appeal techniques

WHEN: Sat. Jan. 6, 2018 – 2 hour training  (timeline & location being finalized)

TRAINER: The Rev. Mike Ward, CFRE, who is guiding the New Connections campaign and working with several of our Metro D.C. Synod congregations on their stewardship and capital programs

The primary purpose of this training is to fully equip your Congregation Leader for Stewardship to lead the New Connections campaign within your congregation. However, the training also provides best practice techniques in special gift fundraising. Whether you have a need to raise $5,000 for a youth trip, or $50,000 for a new air conditioning unit, the manual provided to all attendees will help you reach your goals.

In addition to the manual, Congregation Leaders for Stewardship will receive all the materials they need to conduct the New Connections Campaign – bulletin inserts, brochure, intent cards and more. Questions? Contact Christy Hartigan at
