Stewardship 101

Sharing Treasure

Our expert, Kristine Miller knows! She shares her wisdom in this in–depth Master Class! This is a great way to inform as well as re-energize your church's stewardship initiatives.

Ending Well: Considering Closing

How to Do It with Dignity, Poise, and Grace

It’s a decision every church will probably face: When and how do we close the doors? Like our lives, individual congregations seem to have distinct cycles and were never intended to last forever. The churches St. Paul started two millennia ago are all closed and we can hardly fault Paul as a lousy church planter! So what are the signs we may be nearing the end? How do we approach the delicate conversation of closing? And what do we need to do to end well? Here is what we will discuss:

  • When churches should consider closing.

  • The Four Critical Questions every church needs to address.

  • How to lay down a fleece – or take a litmus test for closure.

  • The 5 keys to faithful ending.

  • The ‘Real Legacy’ of the church.

  • How to walk through the final moments with grace and hope.

Praying

Deepening Spirituality

When non–church goers defend their behavior by saying they are ‘spiritual and not religious’ they seem to be identifying churches as religious, but not spiritual places – and they’re onto something. Too many churches have evolved into places that no longer ask spiritual questions, intentionally listen to God, and help people figure out who they really are. Graham Standish believes that when traditional churches concentrate on helping people listen to God in their lives, they are doing their members, and the world, much good. So how do we create a culture of listening and discernment in our churches? In this class we will learn:

 • Why a “listening” or “discerning” congregation is so important.

 • How to help congregations listen for God together.

 • Helping leaders root their decision–making in discernment.

 • How to move your congregation toward listening.

 • Reaching people who believe they are spiritual, but not religious.

Specifics: This course is perfect for a congregation’s leadership team, prayer team, clergy and laity interested in more deeply listening to God. It includes a 44–minute video, 28–page e–book, and a Keep Following worksheet to accompany the video.

How to Start an
Intergenerational Worship Service

One of the ways growing congregations are building and unleashing the vibrancy in their churches is by establishing an inter–generational worship service. These services recognize the gifts in people of all ages and backgrounds and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to us in new and exciting ways. The average age of members of most churches is higher than the rest of the population. Experts say congregations where a majority of members are age 50 or older are very unlikely to grow. Theresa Cho is bucking that trend with a passion for intergenerational worship. She tells us:

  • What a successful intergenerational worship service looks like.

  • How to organize an intergenerational worship service.

  • Which components are essential and which ones are not.

  • Theology of intergenerational worship.
