Stewardship — Julia McCray-Goldsmith — part 3 of 4

be::community - Julia McCray-Goldsmith pt3

This session on stewardship focuses on the “main event” — the annual pledge drive itself. Julia McCray-Goldsmith urges parishes to move beyond a survival mentality and remember that money follows mission. In order to boost mission, it’s important for people to share their stories — their personal narratives — about the church’s mission and what it means to them. Furthermore, McCray-Goldsmith talks about the pledge drive as opportunity for conversion to Christ, the parish’s mission, and habits of generosity.
