The Presbytery of Central Nebraska will be hosting a Clif Christopher Workshop – May 2, 2015

Revive your Stewardship & Generosity Program

Through a partnership with Horizons Stewardship, The Presbyterian Foundation hosts a series of stewardship seminars with Dr. Clif Christopher, author of Not Your Parents’ Offering Plate and on Saturday, May 2, 2015 the Presbytery of Central Nebraska will be hosting this workshop. Specific details about the workshop will be announced at a later time.

Each of Clif’s books offers an insightful look at stewardship methods today. His other books include Rich Church, Poor Church and Whose Offering Plate Is It?

These seminars allow you to take an honest look at what may be missing in your own congregation’s stewardship program, and find fresh ways to improve its effectiveness.

Please share this information with your churches and others that would benefit by attending this workshop. This workshop is also open to other presbyteries. Spread the word!
