August online trainings for local church nominations committee members and finance leaders have been scheduled by the General Board of Discipleship (GBOD).
August 4 – Nominations Committee
WHO: Nominations Committee members
WHEN: August 4, 4:30 p.m. PDT
WHAT: Basic training for church nominations committees wanting to find true leaders, rather than simply "fill in the lines on the form." Your responsibility is to be the voice of God, calling people into ministry!
WHERE: Your own Internet connection – or gather at the church as a committee and watch together.
August 18 and 25 – a two-part training for Finance Leaders
WHO: Treasurer, Finance Committee, Financial Secretary
WHEN: August 18, 4:30 p.m. PDT
WHAT: Fundraising and money burnout! This webinar will cover the central message of generosity, essentials of an effective program, things that work, and things that do not work. Move beyond "the way we have always done it" to lead your congregation in extravagant generosity for the ministry God has for your congregation.
WHEN: August 25, 4:30 p.m. PDT
WHAT: Extravagant Generosity Starts Here: A boot camp for Finance Leaders. This webinar will be a "put-it-to-work" review of the newest program on the marketplace – "Extravagant Generosity, the Heart of Giving." One of the authors will describe how to make it work, how it is different, and how to get started. Learn about "heart-change" and marketing and branding concepts to inspire generosity among all age groups.
WHERE: Your own Internet connection – or gather with other finance leaders at the church and watch together.
