United Methodist Pastors who have recently been newly assigned to churches gathered at North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount on Saturday, August 16, for a Stewardship Seminar presented by the Conference Committee on Financial Discipleship. The title of the seminar was “Building the Church Budget and Developing a Culture of Stewardship.” It was held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Wesleyan’s Dunn Center for the Performing Arts. In past years, the mandatory seminar had been held during two or three days and required overnight stays. The Financial Discipleship Committee changed the format to include short, one-day events in locations that are easily accessible.
