2013 TENS Flourish in Faith Stewardship Conference Held Via Webcast from Salt Lake City July 11th – 13th
For the first time ever, The Episcopal Network for Stewardship (TENS) will bring the best of its annual 2013 Flourish in Faith Stewardship Conference on July 12-13 in Salt Lake City, to you via webcast. All Saints, Indianapolis and St. Paul’s, Evansville each will host a site where stewardship beginners and leaders from our diocese can gather to participate in online learning and discuss how we can apply what we've learned in our own congregations. Your registration fee of $20 covers meals and refreshments on Friday evening and during the day on Saturday.
Exploring stewardship as a response of faithfulness will be the major focus of the conference, designed to offer congregational teams the theological, scriptural and practical aspects of stewardship information and annual giving. Keynote presenters include J. Clif Christopher, well-known author of Not Your Parents Offering Plate and Rich Church, Poor Church, and Bishop Bruce Caldwell, retired bishop of the Diocese of Wyoming. Questions? Contact John Vernon Oaks, Diocesan Stewardship Officer, 800-669-5786 ext 309 or .
Register for either location’s webcast at indystewardship.eventbrite.com

(To individually register: www.tens.org/2013-conference. True---a webcast is not as good as being there in person. However, it’s better than not attending at all!
The Society of the Magi
THE SOCIETY OF THE MAGI
The Society of The Magi was created by the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis as an umbrella legacy society to promote and support the faithful stewardship of God's gifts and resources. All who have named their church (or other Episcopal institution) as a beneficiary in their estate plans belong to the legacy society of the beneficiary church or institution first and The Society of The Magi second. All who have made such provisions are invited to join the Society by notifying us of the gift, regardless of the size.
Help us identify those who have already made such provisions in their estates. May we come and talk with your congregation about planned gifts?
The fruits of a planned gift go to the beneficiary church or institution. No funds go to the diocese unless the diocese is a named beneficiary.
