Rev. Dr. Rick Young, President & CEO of TPF
One of the many privileges I have had as President of TPF over the past 5 years has been watching and walking with ECO through the first years of its existence. I was invited to participate in the initial design of the ECO healthcare plan thanks to my 13 years of experience with the Board of Pensions. It has been my pleasure to serve on the Health and Wellness Committee for the denomination throughout these times.
As ECO has grown and matured, ECO and TPF have teamed together in numerous ways, including the production of the upcoming webinar, "A Purposeful Partnership: Overcoming the Empty Offering Plate." This live web event is the first in a series of hands-on help and interactive conversations that we will be offering. Together, John Terech and I will be discussing ways to encourage generosity in your congregation, as well as ways to talk about and inspire stewardship. Times are changing in the church, and we need to ensure we remain relevant with each member of our congregations. This interactive webinar is the perfect place to begin or continue this journey. Additionally, we are pleased to offer numerous educational generosity resources that will be discussed during the webinar. However, if you would like to view or order some before, they can be found at http://eco-pres.org/church-resources/financial-services/.
Please consider this my personal invitation to each of you. I hope you will join John Terech and I on October 11th at 11:00am Central Daylight Time to examine generosity and stewardship in your congregation.
