April 25      CMU Leadership Institute:  Leading a Revolution in Generosity
Dr. Scott McKenzie passionately believes stewardship is ultimately a question of faith development and discipleship. As a national workshop leader, author, and conference speaker, he teaches stewardship as “grounded in gratitude, revealed in prayer and lived in faith.” This program is designed for pastors, and Dr. McKenzie will discuss the best and worst practices in stewardship, how to recruit the right generosity team, and the importance of leadership. Pastors will explore and reflect on personal experiences and expectations that impact how we think, act and lead within the church – and how to better lead the generosity revolution! Dr. McKenzie is a partner and Senior Vice President with Horizons Stewardship. He is a UM pastor, having served churches and as the Director of Stewardship in the Western Pennsylvania Conference of the UMC.
Location:  Central Methodist University, Jacobs Conference Center
411 Central Methodist Sq., Fayette, MO 65248
Cost: $35 per person (includes McKenzie’s book Generosity Rising, handouts, and lunch)
