Congratulations, AFA Class of 2022

Annabel Lusardi, Jack Brooks and a cadre of other Financial Leadership Academy (FLA) staff, coaches, and leaders helped to shepherd the Class of 2022 to the completion of the Advanced Financial Academy.  The year-long training process, led by Rev. Dr. Karin Walker and Rev. Dr A. David Argo, culminated in the graduation of 19 candidates who completed 45 contact hours, resulting in new ministry projects throughout the Northeastern Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church.  

In the coming weeks we will share videos outlining each of the projects undertaken by the graduates to enrich and fund ministry and mission in each of their unique settings.
