The Rev. David Bell leads an Extravagant Generosity workshop.

Rejuvenate is sponsoring and has formed several partnerships to provide educational opportunities that will benefit clergy, their spouses, congregations and all individuals.

Extravagant Generosity Workshops with the Rev. David Bell

Attending one of these workshops will increase your financial knowledge and planning skills and help clergy have a greater understanding of Christian stewardship!

A national speaker, author and pastor, Bell currently serves as a senior partner with Design Group International and as the vice president of Stewardship with the United Methodist Foundation of Michigan. His interactive presentations help people share and learn from one another in a comfortable style.

The first day of these workshops is for clergy and their spouses to attend, “Grateful Living and Generous Giving: An Introduction to Personal Budget Planning, Estate Planning and Christian Stewardship for Clergy and their Spouses.”

The second half-day is for clergy and lay team members to attend “Encouraging the Joy of Extravagant Generosity: A Call to Financial Discipleship.” Clergy and lay team members will gain a deeper theological understanding of Christian stewardship. They will learn about their respective roles in cultivating extravagant generosity, personally and in the congregation.

The next Extravagant Generosity Workshops will be offered:

  • Nov. 20-21 in Warren, Ind.;
  • Jan. 8-9 in Vincennes, Ind.; and
  • Jan. 22-23 in Zionsville, Ind.
