Type of event: Conference

Sponsor: Central East Region of the UUA, UU Congregation of Erie, Erie, PA

We Apologize, but This Event Has Been Canceled Due to Low Registration Numbers.

We had a lot of interest in the conference, but fall schedules and travel considerations prevented enough registrants to make this event economically viable.

Please mark your calendars for a similar, but "Virtual" Stewardship Conference on Saturday, January 25, 2020. 

Elizabeth Ann Terry will be offering the keynote, and we'll offer a similar panel and selection of workshops.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Renee Ruchotzke (ruh-HUT-skee) at rruchotzke [at] uua [dot] org 330-554-0828.


Keynote Speaker: Elizabeth Ann Terry

Money is…

Elizabeth is fascinated by the power of religious institutions to have meaningful impacts on their communities. She has been a witness to congregations who apply the principles of asset-based community development and appreciative inquiry to move their congregations and communities into bright and purposeful futures.

With nearly 50 years of providing training, technical assistance and consulting to nonprofit organizations and congregations her intention is to continue to be of service to communities of faith who believe that collective gifts of the head, heart, and hands can change to world. Currently Elizabeth serves you as the congregational giving specialist at your Unitarian Universalist Association of congregations. She is a member of the board of directors of Forward Together, the Unitarian Universalist Justice Ministry of North Carolina and a member of Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Wilmington (NC).
