Asheville, NC - June 25-27, 2019
The conference will train parish stewardship teams, from dioceses where the bishop has previously attended a Project Resource session, in planning and developing year-round stewardship ministries which include: annual giving campaigns, major gift asks, and planned giving initiatives. An ideal parish team would consist of 5 members including the parish clergy, parish communications person, stewardship committee chair, and other committed lay leaders. At the minimum, each team must have the parish priest and two lay leaders. We hope you will form a team from your parish and join us June 25-27, 2019, at the Crowne Plaza Resort in Asheville, NC. This conference will be limited to 75 participants so please register as soon as you are able. Registration will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Project Resource seeks to change our culture and systems around financial development in the worldwide Episcopal Church. Project Resource provides teaching, focus, and resources such that a team may return to their parish equipped to begin their annual stewardship campaign. Project Resource does this by:
gathering the best resources, which not only deal with raising money, but which explores internal narratives of money while addressing- societal shifts, organizational change, and leadership challenges.
providing parish teams time to interpret the content, session by session, within the realities and particularities of their own parish, cultural, and regional situations.
empowering each team to leave with a working plan, with measurable objectives, tailored specifically for their own parish.
The conference will begin at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, June 25th and will conclude at 11:00 AM on Thursday, June 27. Please plan to fly in to the Asheville Regional Airport; it is located approximately 20 minutes from the airport by taxi or Uber.
