Budget Deficit Disorder: Diagnosis and Treatment
A Narrated Powerpoint by Andy Gustafson, Associate Conference Minister for Stewardship & Financial Development
Many congregations struggle with budget deficits and too often the resulting conversations are not very helpful, to say the least. The question is how to handle them in a faithful constructive way? This power point presentation was developed for a March 2013 Super Saturday workshop to help churches approach their budget issues in a healthy, productive way. A narration has now been added to make it available to anyone at anytime.
Stewardship Webinar 2013: Best Practices in an Annual Pledge Program
On Sept. 24, 2013, Massachusetts Conference Associate Conference Minister Andy Gustafson gave a Webinar on Best Practices of An Annual Pledge Campaign. This was the first webinar offered by the Conference, and there were some issues with the sound that we hope to address in future webinars. We are still offering the recording here, however, in hopes that it will be useful to your church.
