Are your church committees having virtual meetings? If so, we would love to hold a workshop for you. We can review recent market events or discuss financial stewardship plans to help your church in uncertain times. Contact us at 515-974-8927 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss what topics you would like to cover and the logistics.
Process of Setting up a Workshop
Step One: Pick a venue — We can come to your church board meeting, your finance committee meeting, or even attend an after the service lunch. The options are endless!
Step Two: Pick a topic — Listed above are several workshop topics that you can choose from. If you have any questions about what each of those workshops entail, feel free to contact us so we can help you figure out which workshop will be most beneficial to you. If there’s something else you are needing guidance on, contact us and we can see what we can do to help you out.
Step Three: Contact the Foundation — Once you have narrowed down what you are looking for, contact the Foundation office by calling 515-974-8927 or emailing email@example.com to schedule a workshop time. The Foundation’s Executive Director, Katharine Yarnell, has 14 years of experience with financial stewardship and estate planning and will be the one to lead the workshops.
