UPDATE:  The Rev. Heather Manuel, Parish of Lake of Bays (Diocese of Algoma), will be a featured presenter!


Plan to participate in a conference that promises to help your congregations missional and financial health!

It's easy to get to from the east end of the Diocese and should not be missed!

The "generosity@mission.god" stewardship conference will take place on Saturday, November 3, 9:00am-4:00pm at St David's Anglican/Lutheran Church, Orillia.


«  You and your parish leadership colleagues often feel anxious about whether your parish is able to make its capital and ministry objectives

«  Givings in your parish are lacklustre and you need inspiration on how to turn things around

«  Leadership feels apprehensive about how to ask members of your church for an increase in their giving

«  Ideas about how to inspire generosity in a small or rural congregation are in short supply

«  You want to share ideas about what really motivates a sustained spirit of generosity


This conference will help congregations nurture and grow stewardship in a meaningful and tangible way.  Highlights include: 

«  Take away materials

«  Presentations from parish leaders who are skilled communicators with relevant congregational experience

«  Focus on generous financial giving connected to the mission of the church

«  Important plenary discussion focused on rural and small congregations

«  Key-note address by Bishop Phil Poole on embracing a theology of abundance

Topic areas:

«  What are we learning about doing stewardship in small or rural congregations?

«  What motivates generosity?

«  How do we implement a successful stewardship program?

«  Getting the basics right

«  The art of the ask

«  Parish case studies
