Our Money Stories: How our perceptions of money influence our giving patterns - particularly in a crisis

About this Event

We all have money stories, whether we recognize it or not. These stories influence how we engage in crisis--often through fear and shame. They supersede what we learn from our faith tradition and where we profess to place our trust. However, money and possessions are one of the most common topics in scripture, and Jesus talked about money more than faith and prayer. Our money story, therefore, is a spiritual story. During our hour together, we will begin to unpack our own stories and scriptural stories and explore how they might be influencing our current response to COVID19, which also realizing that this exploration strengthens all stewardship and fundraising ministries.

The presenters will review how church fundraisers can adjust our fundraising and stewardship strategies to meet these times of uncertainty. Join Mieke Vandersall — a Presbyterian pastor who has worked for over a decade on LGBTQ equality, is a leader in fundraising strategy and strategic planning, and works as a church planter — and Erin Weber-Johnson — a published author, speaker and Episcopalian who roots her stewardship work in practical theology while utilizing her years of fundraising experience in her consulting with individual congregations — for this important discussion.

Panelists include:

  • The Rev. Mieke Vandersall, Principal, Vandersall Collective
  • Ms. Erin Weber-Johnson, Senior Consultant, Vandersall Collective
