September 21, 2021 – Cultivating the Craft of Asking
By Ken Sloane
DATE: Tuesday, September 21, 2021
TIME: 6:30 p.m. CDT
PRESENTERS: Ken Sloane & Bonnie Marden
For years there has been a perception that people have stayed away from church because “the church is always asking for money.” This has led many churches to feel like money is a taboo subject – reserving that uncomfortable conversation for a Sunday in the fall (if at all) and then put it back on the shelf for another year. In so many ways this fear has worked against our mission to grow faithful, generous disciples.
Join Rev. Ken Sloane, Director, Stewardship & Generosity, as he welcomes his guest, Bonnie Marden, Founder and President of MYTE Ministries, consulting with church leaders on growing generosity in local churches. Bonnie has pioneered a successful teaching curriculum titled “Cultivating the Craft of Asking” which has increased confidence in church leaders to “boldly ask” for financial gifts to empower their church's ministry.
Ken Sloane is the Director of Stewardship & Generosity for Discipleship Ministries of The United Methodist Church.
