|Online learning experience in 6 sessions beginning June 24
Cultivating Generous Congregations (CGC) is an interactive online learning experience that demonstrates how pastors and ministry leaders can unearth and energize congregational generosity by exploring the significant and necessary steps to creating lasting cultural change within a congregation.
Intended for teams of 2 or more from your congregation, you’ll benefit from the focus on application to religious organizations, while gaining access to cutting-edge research data from the Indiana University Lilly Family School on Philanthropy. You will learn the importance of integrating quality fundraising practices as one aspect of awakening generosity as a congregational practice. Participant dialogue will complement the written materials and presentation format that guide the seminar.
Interactive segments of CGC explore theology, the role of adaptive leadership, fiscal transparency and the importance of donor care, with action steps to impact the generosity exploration and experience for both laity and clergy.
This course is intended for those who:

Trent Williams, Friends Congregational Church UCC, 2018 CGC participant (Read Rev. Williams’ full story)
