"
Is your church facing a budget crisis? Is your salary stagnant? Does your church fight about money—or keep secrets about it? This presentation will help you learn a way to understand what’s really going on (in us and in others) when money becomes an issue in congregational life, and how to lead around money with lowered anxiety and more clarity. What you will take away with you: a new way to approach the money challenges we all face at church." ~ Margaret Marcuson
