Creating a Narrative Budget: The Story Behind the Numbers (Discipleship Ministries)

July 18 All day

Discipleship Ministries is excited to announce the re-launch of a popular online course for local church leaders: Creating a Narrative Budget – The Story Behind the Numbers.

The course is written and hosted by the Rev. Dr. Ken Sloane, Director of Stewardship & Generosity, who introduces the course and sets up each of the sessions in videos. Ken also serves as instructor for the course, interacting with participants through their responses to questions throughout the course, and answering questions that might arise.

Along with the course content, students will download a Narrative Budget Workbook in versions that will open in either Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets. With the workbook, participants will enter their local church’s budget (and a few other bits of information), and the workbook will organize those line items into broad ministry areas – a key tool in presenting a narrative budget!
