Funding Urban Ministry: Beyond the Collection Plate
Monday, April 20, 2015 - 10:00am to 3:00pm
Led by Rev. Faith Fowler, Senior Pastor of Cass Community United Methodist Church and Executive Director of Cass Community Social Services in Detroit MI.

We will discuss what difference money makes to ministry (when a congregation is able to pay its pastor, raise apportionments, manage building repairs, expand its outreach, etc.) and why the pastor must take an active role in securing funds.  As part of this, we will take a fresh look at fundraisers, fee-for-service activities, foundation and corporate grants, government contracts and building/property rental.
