Many congregations are finding that the traditional or usual ways of funding ministry through member giving are becoming more difficult. Local congregations are rediscovering or leveraging their entrepreneurial Wesleyan Spiritual DNA and finding new ways to generate income, build partnerships, and impact local communities. Diversified or multiple income sources help provide stability. This two-session course will explore emerging alternative funding models and provide tools for discernment and resources for taking important and increasingly urgent next steps.
Pre-work: To Be Announced
These sessions are designed for a congregational team that includes the pastors and a member of the trustees, finance committee, church council, and the lay leader.
