Free training: lifetime plan for givingTM course

Join us for a three-day course in St. Louis, Missouri on October 6, 7 and 8. This training is for leaders (paid and unpaid) looking to create an ongoing, long-term funding source for their ministry, beyond the offering plate or periodic capital campaign.

The course will equip leaders to develop a biblical gift planning service and also teach how to partner with donors to ensure they accomplish their goals for loved ones and beloved ministries. 

The course will cover:

  • Biblical stewardship; the case for gift planning
  • Helping identify potential donors
  • Guiding LCMS contributors through the gift planning process
  • Encouraging stewards to give from their estate and assets
  • Basic tax strategies and financial products used in gift planning

Course attendees will receive:

  • A certificate of attendance
  • A binder of valuable resources and material
  • Eligibility for the Christian Gift Planner (CGP) Certificate
  • Eighteen equivalency hours of continuing education

*Please note: Your safety is very important to us. While we're currently planning for this training to be in-person, we know things may change. If they do, we will adjust in accordance to local government guidelines.
