Stewardship Day: Tools for Transformation 

Stewardship is important in your parish because it encourages an improved relationship with God by everyone in your congregation. Stewardship transforms discipleship and focuses on the need of the giver to give, rather than the need of the congregation to receive. Stewardship is about our compassionate response in returning God’s abundance to each of us – it is about giving to God’s Mission in the world through the church. The day is designed for stewardship teams, stewardship chairs, lay leaders, clergy and wardens.

STEWARDSHIP DAY: TOOLS FOR TRANSFORMATION is designed to help you understand the theology, tools and leadership roles in effective stewardship.  The conference features three plenary speakers & linked workshops.

First, The Ven. Michael Thompson, General Secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada will be speaking about the Theology of Stewardship followed by a workshop on that topic.

Second,  Peter Misiaszek, the Director of Development for the Diocese of Toronto will speak about Tools for Action and the "14 Best Practices of Stewardship", followed by a workshop on that topic.

Third, our own Bishop Melissa will speak about Leadership Skills for Stewardship, followed by a workshop on that topic.

Every person that attends the conference will receive a copy of the significantly revised “Stewardship Resources for Parish Leaders” book. This resource has been redesigned and divided into three sections: Theology of Stewardship; Tools for Transformation; and Leadership Skills for Stewardship.

Each parish that attends will receive one copy of "Ask Thank Tell: Improving Stewardship Ministry in your Congregations" by Charles Lane.

A bag lunch and comfort breaks are included.


The Ven. Michael Thompson     Mr. Peter Misiaszek       The Right Rev. Melissa Skelton
