5 Talent Academy Stewardship Event

Saturday, March 8, 2014 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM

The 5 Talent Academy and the Virginia United Methodist Foundation are pleased to present J. Clif Christopher, President, CFRE of Horizons Stewardship Company, as the keynote speaker. Learn how to convince potential givers about the real significance and impact of their gifts. Ideal for clergy looking to reinvigorate their stewardship campaigns and lay persons eager to cultivate ways to help increase church giving in a meaningful way, this event is not one to miss. We recommend churches gather finance committees and stewardship committees and plan to attend this important event together as a team.
