Education

What are you going to do if giving continues to decline?

How will you create a true culture of generosity?

What are the financial best practices for today's churches?

MAUMF offers training for pastors and laity to inform, inspire, engage, renew and develop a deeper understanding of Christian Stewardship. We can work with church management to help develop a proactive plan to develop a culture of generosity. We help individuals plan significant gifts to their church either during their lifetime or through their will. We also work with accountants and financial advisors who are advising congregation members on how to best give to their church. You do not have to have funds invested with the Foundation to take advantage of our resources and support. Contact us to discuss your specific situation.

For the next level of education, we offer structured classes:

Financial Leadership Academy

An extraordinary opportunity for clergy to enhance skills in stewardship and financial development. This is a comprehensive, two-year program which helps develop clergy into strong financial leaders. Clergy learn best practices from keynote speakers so congregations grow in stewardship and have more resources for mission and ministry. Expert facilitators and peer group mentoring help clergy develop and implement an action plan that is specific to the congregation they serve. Our current seminar is underway. Stay tuned for details for future offerings.

Let us know if you are potentially interested in attending and we’ll send you details as available.

District Webinars

We have several webinar trainings available to present at a district level to groups of clergy and/or laity.  Whether you need help with effectively funding ministry, developing a planned giving program, or learning about year-round stewardship, we have a program that will help. 

Let us know if you are interested in setting up a webinar for your district and we can work with you to design a program that meets your needs.
