PRESENTERS: Ken Sloane, Dr. Ed Phillips
Churches are struggling with the decline in people using checks or carrying cash, and the rise of digital money to take care of financial commitments. It has left many to question whether “passing the plate” is a relevant part of worship. In the present pandemic as many look ahead at protocols for reopening in-person worship, the question is even more pressing. Join us for this webinar as Ken Sloane (Director, Stewardship & Generosity) and his guest Dr. Ed Phillips (Assoc. Professor of Worship, Candler School of Theology) share a discussion of the past, present, and future of "the offering" in worship as the vehicle for funding ministry, and what might be best practices as we move into the future.
Ken Sloane is the Director of Stewardship & Generosity for Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church.
