11.  PRESBYTERIAN SHARING: Creating new paths of generosity. In April, members of the Stewards by Design planning committee attended the “Pathways to Generosity” conference at King of Glory Lutheran Church in Dallas, Texas. They were inspired by dynamic worship, a diverse group of keynote speakers and workshops on topics ranging from preaching stewardship, narrative budgets, stewardship and social media, legacy giving and the stewardship of creation. The team also met with Dr. Kennon Callahan, keynote speaker for the next Stewards by Design conference planned for May, 2019. Members returned home ready to create new paths of generosity in the PCC’s stewardship ministry.
