Generosity Symposium 2023

NAD Stewardship Ministries with several Division ministries and services are collectively under the umbrella of the Adventist Ministries Convention (AMC). This Convention is an opportunity for all conference officers, union officers, and departmental directors in the North American Division territory to come together. Step away from your busy schedules and unite, fellowship, network, experience post-pandemic coaching, and learn nuances in varied ministry areas with workshop/seminar tracks resulting in a spiritual recharge-REPLENISH. The AMC will be held in Greensboro, NC January 8-11, 2023 (www.adventistministriesconvention.com).

Stewardship Ministries is leveraging this opportunity to launch Generosity Symposium 2023 (tentative schedule below), a specific stewardship focus to highlight the significance and wholistic range of Revolutionary Generosity for its leaders and potential leaders. We are inviting you to join in with us as we start a day earlier than AMC with a Generosity Day on Sabbath, January 7th. This is in collaboration with Southern Union (David Long) and Carolina (David Graham), South Atlantic (Allen Baldwin) Conferences’ stewardship ministries departments. In your travel plans, include coming in on Friday the 6th to celebrate kicking off the Symposium.

Generosity Day will be held simultaneously at several churches in the Greensboro area (Participating Churches). This will be followed by an afternoon stewardship coaching session at the Sheraton Hotel for current and prospective lay stewardship leaders, conference leaders, pastors, elders, treasurers, church officers, and those who love the principles of Stewardship. Then on Sunday, January 8, our Real Talk Stewardship Advisory takes place (Limited Seating RSVP Now Below); all this happens before the AMC kicks off that evening.

All are welcome to participate. Sabbath morning worship on Generosity Day is free and open to all without registration. The Sabbath afternoon coaching session and Real Talk Stewardship Advisory are also free and open to all, but if you wish to attend either or both of these portions of the event, we ask that you RSVP now using the form below because we need an accurate count of attendees for the networking repast and lunch meal. The Adventist Ministries Convention is also open to all, but registration and an associated fee is required. Don’t miss this one. Register now (see www.adventistministriesconvention.com).
