Vanco’s Richard Bauer will present the topic, “Growing Giving Online”
ELCA’s StewardCast is held with the purpose to thank, inform, teach, inspire and connect current and new steward leaders with fresh perspectives, practices and skills that address the challenges and issues faced in growing stewards in our households, congregations and communities.
Churches face the challenges of current culture and world issues while striving for a deeper understanding of what the resurrection of Jesus Christ means today. Addressing these circumstances is not a financial issue, but spiritual. The ELCA is energized by the opportunity to engage in lively conversation about faith and life, both individually and as a community of believers. This event invites and encourages us to do so from our role as stewards.
Vanco’s Richard Bauer will present a special presentation on “Growing Giving Online,” sharing success stories from ELCA churches.
