Saturday, November 15, 2014
9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Sts. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church Carnegie, PA
A Parish that practices true Orthodox Christian Stewardship is truly on fire and can achieve the unimaginable and experience no financial challenges as it strives to emulate the kingdom of God. It is the challenge of every Parish council, stewardship and other ministry leaders and Priest to ensure that his or her Parish practices true stewardship and gives every parishioner the opportunity to maximize his or her commitment of time, talent and treasures for God’s work. The question is how best to implement a truly successful stewardship ministry program?
Igniting the Flame of True Orthodox Christian Stewardship is a unique, inspirational and step-by-step educational and interactive experience that effectively teaches how to implement a highly successful stewardship paradigm. This 4-hour high energy and very entertaining program includes time to answer specific questions tailored to the unique needs of each Parish.
Participants will learn:
(1) The real facts of what is happening in Christian churches in America;
(2) What true stewardship is;
(3) How to re-organize your Parish to maximize results;
(4) What are the 3 critical stewardship principles;
(5) How to implement effectively 2 dynamic stewardship tactics;
(6) The 3 most effective communications strategies; and
(7) A highly successful Parish operational and organizational paradigm;
(8) How strategic planning can help your Parish better organize to live its stewardship calling. This dynamic training also provides a comprehensive 9-step process for how to organize the most effective Parish and stewardship ministry.
The experienced facilitator is Bill Marianes who has traveled over 160,000 miles energizing and inspiring thousands of church leaders throughout the country to achieve outstanding and significantly improved results in every aspect of their parish life. This highly effective, practical and spiritually based Christian stewardship approach can substantially improve a Parish’s ministries, communications with its stewards and financial stewardship results. The conventional wisdom is that “insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” Many Parishes have practiced a degree of insanity with their unsuccessful or stagnant stewardship programs. This is the chance to break the chains that bind us to less effective stewardship and Parish practices.
To receive the most from this dynamic program, ALL members of the Parish council, stewardship ministry members and ministry leaders and Priest(s) of a Parish should attend to better understand how to work together to maximize their effectiveness. Please make every effort to attend this very exciting, informative and entertaining program that will help you: (i) take your Parish to new levels of success; and (ii) learn how to achieve your own unique stewardship calling to serve God and His Church.
