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.
