Are you interested is a stewardship opportunity that will guide your congregation through your fall stewardship appeal? This stewardship program for your congregation will seek to:
- Stabilize and grow financial giving?
- Teach Biblical stewardship principles?
- Help members discover generosity?
- Begin building a foundation for a generous culture?
If your answer is YES to any of the above questions, you may want to consider registering for Building a Culture of Generosity (BCG). BCG is a process to walk along with congregations with basic stewardship resourcing using 6 virtual, live training events led by Mike Ward, a GSB consultant, between July and November 2023. Rev.

The full cost of the program is $475 with the South Carolina Synod paying $200 per congregation. Your congregation covers the remaining $275 per congregation, due with registration. Participants are invited to join six Zoom meetings. Each meeting will be recorded and shared following each meeting. You are welcome to have as many from your stewardship team as you want to join the meetings on the Zoom.
