The Episcopal Diocese of Colorado implemented an innovative approach when they surveyed parishes in the diocese about need for leadership formation and stewardship assistance. The results of their survey indicated a need for education and sharing ideas of best practices. Church Development provided the technical assistance for the webinar series, and president Denis Greene presented content for two of the webinars for no charge.
Paul's role as the Missioner for Development and Financial Stewardship is to assist parishes in increasing collective competency and capacity to raise the funds needed to support and expand the mission of The Episcopal Church in Colorado. It includes providing training and resources for annual parish stewardship efforts, advising and supporting congregations in capital fundraising projects, raising funds for diocesan initiatives such as Cathedral Ridge and Colorado Episcopal Service Corps, and identifying and securing grants to support specific mission projects.
"We are so grateful to work with you and have your insights, wisdom, and expertise, Denis. I liked the interaction between us and Denis and felt it was good for him to take the lead then, for us to pitch in."
