Barbara Stechert, Manager of Donor Relations and Ministry Partnerships for Lutheran Charities and a Certified Church Consultant, will engage the adult forum participants in a Jeffersonian style conversation.
Thomas Jefferson liked to structure his dinners and his conversations by posing questions and allowing one person at a time to speak for no more than 2 minutes. This allowed participants to both listen and speak and for topics to be delved into deeply. Sunday’s questions will center around your passions – why you support causes, who was your role model for generosity, what does your church do to encourage visitors and new members and similar questions.
The hour will go quickly and the sharing will help us all gain insight. Think about the first question Barbara will pose: “If you were given substantial funds to give to any organization, who would you give it to and why.”
