Give Your Annual Stewardship Campaign a Jumpstart! In this pilot webinar, we featured a successful stewardship campaign produced and used by MCC San Diego. Even if your church has never done a stewardship campaign this webinar is for you. It included presentations by the MCC Stewardship Team (pastor, board member and stewardship team chair), timeline, step-by-step guide, and resources that you can edit for use in your local church. We are most grateful to MCC San Diego, Pastor Dan Koeshall, and the entire Stewardship Team for the generous sharing of their time and materials in presenting this pilot Stewardship Webinar. This webinar is part of the OCLH resourcing strategy to more effectively facilitate peer learning and support.

Or are you ready to increase the professional capacity of your media and communications ministries? This series of webinars will present information and tools for just those kinds of situations and more. MCC leaders have stories to tell.

“Serious Conflict is the Number One Predictor of Congregational Decline” [Hartford Institute for Religion Research] but it doesn’t have to be this way. The more we are able to understand the dynamics of conflict and frustration and our options for responding, the more confident communities and leaders can become in transforming conflict healthily.

Rev. Pressley Sutherland will be introducing tried and tested industry level resources and assessment tools to assist in overcoming helplessness and the downward spiral of negativity, that many congregations experience when conflicts surface.
