Funding Your Vision (Networking Breakfast)

The vision God gives for any ministry has two things in common with other ministries. Financial resources will be required to make it a reality, and God is the one who will provide those funds. But how?

To help you identify options for funding your ministry’s vision, join us for breakfast, network with your peers, and hear from two experts about the benefits of capital campaigns and planned giving.

ECCU, RSI Stewardship, and Fulcrum Philanthropy Systems will present Funding Your Vision from 7:45 to 11:45 a.m. at Maggiano’s Little Italy restaurant on June 6, 2013.

Reserve your spot today!
