NARRATIVE BUDGET – TELLING THE STORY OF YOUR CHURCH BUDGET
3:45 – 4:45
Room: Muskoka III
This seminar helps church leaders understand why people give – and just as important – why they don’t.
This new, innovative tool will help show your church how to connect the budget to the church vision and then share it in a way that people will both understand and want to support.
