This February 28 through March 1, join with other congregational leaders to discuss the spirit behind the ministry of fundraising. Participating churches are asked to send two representatives from the community – a member of the pastoral staff and a key leader from the stewardship committee, ministry and oversight, or treasurer. Two members from each church/meeting will help keep alive the conversation and learning once back home and provide useful accountability for implementing ideas.
Quaker Spring is an ongoing experiment in what a deeply Spirit-led gathering can look like. Drawing together Christian and Christian-curious Friends from across North America, Quaker Spring is an opportunity to gather in simplicity and let go of tightly-wound schedules, and to experience the presence of the Holy Spirit together. This year’s gathering will be held June 24-29, 2014 at Olney Friends School in Barnesville, Ohio.
