  • How to Create and Use a Narrative Budget

    Webinar (For Churches)

    In this webinar, Rick Droog, Stewardship Consultant at Barnabas Foundation discusses how to create and use a narrative budget. When proposing annual budgets, most church leaders present their congregations with various line items and lots of numbers. A popular and extremely effective approach currently being used is to “tell the story” behind the numbers. This is referred to as a Narrative Budget, and it provides your congregation with a vision of your ministry, rather than just a spreadsheet of line items.

  • Mapping your Congregation’s Assets

    Webinar (For Churches)

    In this webinar, Fred Milligan, Stewardship Consultant at Barnabas Foundation discusses mapping your congregation’s assets. Asset Mapping is a term which arrived in the not-for-profit world a number of years ago as community development leaders sought ways to move economically distressed communities from a scarcity mentality focused primarily on their needs to an abundance mentality focused on their existing resources.  Applying this technique to church stewardship attitudes and practices is relatively new and holds potential for helping churches operate out of an abundance mentality.
