Connection and Promotion of Giving Training
One of 7 trainings offered through the Communication Ministry Training Program is the United Methodist Connection and Promotion of Giving.
All things come from God, and of God’s own have we given God. - adapted from 1 Chronicles 29:14b
The purpose of United Methodist Connection and Promotion of Giving is to enable every United Methodist church to participate fully in the United Methodist connection by paying 100 percent of its shared giving opportunities and contributing to the designated funds of The United Methodist Church.
Through the training, lay and clergy members will be able to interpret, promote and advocate full support of their apportioned giving. It will also help one to understand the importance of our connectional giving, in that it enables us to do more together than we could do alone!
When a need touches our hearts, we want to give. The church should share stories of need and provide an opportunity for people to help.
As Christians and members of The United Methodist Church, we are called to be generous, cheerful givers. This training will help us show others how Together We Can.
The Conference Communications Office will be working to put together a training team that will be available to conduct trainings throughout the Conference. We will be seeking requests for the various trainings and will work with districts to determine where and when to conduct trainings.
