What will I learn?

This course is composed of three sections:

  • Why we give: explores the biblical and theological basis for giving.
  • The United Methodist Connection: understand more about how The United Methodist Church is a connectional church
  • Creating a culture of generostiy: learn how missional storytelling impacts giving and how to ask others to contrubute gifts as well as prayers, time, talents and witness

You'll learn how to be a “missional storyteller”—describing the difference the church makes in the world and how giving impacts that. You'll also understand how to “make the ask” in your congregation.
