First We Give of Ourselves, Year Two Workshops

First, We Give of Ourselves is a three-year discipleship and financial stewardship journey written for NIS congregations by Pastor Kurt Nordby, Assistant to the Bishop for Stewardship and Development.  Many of our congregations have used this program in 2014, and reports have been very positive.

There are a number of workshop opportunities for congregations planning to use the material for Year Two.  The content of each workshop will be a brief overview of the program and a more detailed planning approach to Year Two material.  The workshop opportunities are listed below.
