“The AWF United Methodist Foundation is always looking for ways to support the local church. Providing support during the COVID-19 pandemic allows pastors and church staff to discover new ways to operate.” – Anonymous (April 2020)
In January 2019, the Alabama-West Florida United Methodist Foundation established Game Changing Leadership as a continuing service and resource to Alabama-West Florida Conference pastors, financial leaders, church staff, and lay leadership. These events focus on a variety of financial topics and needs in the church, including fostering a generous culture, developing financial leadership skills, planned giving programs and legacy giving, and improving personal and church financial health. Each session contains tips and tools that church leaders can easily put into place right away to start seeing an impact.
“I wanted to share an appreciation for the excellent webinar. It was the most practical content I have ever heard on helping churches become generous. I think every pastor needs to hear this. Great service to the churches of AWF Conference. Thank you to the Foundation for this gift.” – Rev. Rudy Heintzelman (March 2019)
We have been able to offer events across our Conference in Alabama (Montgomery and Mobile) and Florida (Crestview) as well as online in a digital setting. We are grateful for our continued partnerships with both Generis and the Alabama-West Florida Conference; their contributions, invaluable speakers, support, and continued promotion, have been crucial to the success of these events.
“I waited patiently for this day to arrive, and I was NOT disappointed. Right from the start, I found the information informative and useful. There was NO clock watching here. Every speaker was engaging, they kept my interest, and their delivery was exciting, drawing you into the conversation on how to live a life of generosity. I am VERY thankful to the U.M. Foundation of AWF for providing this event. YOU made MY DAY!” – Rev. Steve Warren (September 2019)
