Clergy Financial Literacy Academy Update

Expand

BY REV. KEITH E. LAWDER, GUMF PRESIDENT/CEO

The initial pilot of our Clergy Financial Literacy Academy last summer was a huge success. We presented our results and course critiques to the cabinets from each Conference. They asked us to find a cost effective way to make this training available to all clergy. We are working with Urban Ministries in Chicago to create an electronic delivery of course materials. Participants can prepare for group sessions using their computer during times that are convenient for their schedules. Case discussions may be held with their groups via teleconference or in-person with a local facilitator. We hope to have the first sessions available late this fall.
