Education is one of the most important objectives of The Episcopal Network for Stewardship.
We engage in this so that we can teach new generations about generosity and abundance, so that we can learn from each other about best practices in fundraising, and so that we can all know how to talk about money and meaning.
Workshops offered through conferences or virtually through webinars give us a way to teach each other and learn from Stewardship experts across the Church.
TENS offers webinars throughout the year to vestries, stewardship committees, dioceses, and provinces to help prepare lay and clergy stewardship leaders for pledge campaigns and to talk about year-round stewardship. To sign up to receive notifications as soon as we release a new event, please register at our Eventbrite page http://theepiscopalnetworkforstewardship.eventbrite.com
