Mission & Stewardship Education

Equipping and empowering our congregations to develop and live their faith practices of mission and stewardship is the ministry of the Mission & Stewardship Education Committee. Providing educational workshops and seminars prepares members of the Indiana-Kentucky Conference for faithful finances and outreach. The annual Barnabas Award, missionary itineration, and mission trips to Chile represent some of the mission experiences sponsored by this committee. We lift up and give voice to Our Churches Wider Mission and the Four Special Offerings in our covenant to give continuing testament and change lives.

The Rev. Doris Powell, UCC Minister for Stewardship, Faith & Finances provided an excellent keynote address at our well attended Stewardship Bash in 2011. Individual workshops, such as the one provided by Jan Bates, former IKC Director of Planned Giving, provided attendees with real world practices.

We are pleased to have offered our third Chile Mission, that spent 10 days in January of 2014 working with missionary Elena Huegel. Please contact the IN-KY Conference office for more details.
