Every year, Everence presents Stewardship University. A keynote speaker and a diverse line-up of courses invite participants to discover how to live a life of holistic stewardship. Once again this year, GKH is a Stewardship University sponsor, and GKH attorneys are well-represented among the presenters.
During the 11:00 a.m. session, attorneys Elvin Kraybill and Doug Smith will discuss how to create “win-win” giving strategies that benefit charities and individuals. This seminar will show how to navigate the many available options in a way that will maximize charitable gifts for both nonprofits and the people we care about.
At 1:30 p.m., attorneys Justin Bollinger and Ann Martin will present “Do-and-Don’t Legal Issues for Churches.” Doing good through financial and legal stewardship and proactive church governance can be a major part of a church’s witness to the world. Conversely, there are things churches should not be doing, in part because these things may result in a poor witness to a watching world. This seminar will help church leaders and congregants discern what legal issues should be addressed so that the church’s witness will not be compromised.
