"NOW INTO THE WORLD"
Come for Annual Giving ... and every other ministry, too!
*engage and inspire your world of ministries*
At its heart, stewardship is about “using the gifts God gives us to do the work God calls us to do.” Come with your entire leadership team to cultivate and nourish momentum across all ministry areas. After all, churches with a vibrant congregational life are also churches that are vibrant in giving.
The day will open with remarks by our bishops, then be followed by engaging workshops and roundtables. Join us to connect with lay and clergy leaders from every corner of the Diocese of Virginia. We look forward to seeing you there!
