August 4-7, 2019
Lakeside Chautauqua

You are invited to register for an outstanding continuing education opportunity. The United Methodist Foundation of Michigan, along with several other United Methodist Foundations throughout the Midwest, has partnered with Lakeside Chautauqua for the past few years in a multi-day learning conference. Clergy and laity involved in stewardship, finance, development, and planned giving leadership are invited to participate in a unique learning experience on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie at Lakeside Chautauqua.  Attendees of the Generosity & Stewardship Conference will participate in several key plenary sessions, breakout workshops, and community fellowship. Please download the flyer for all of the details. 

You may register during the month of December and receive a special rate which already reflects the Foundation’s generous grant support. Early bird sign-up is limited to the first 13 confirmed registrants from each sponsoring United Methodist foundation. You may be among the first from Michigan to sign-up for one of our thirteen spots. Once the early bird registration is filled, you will need to wait for open registration in March. However, the conference has sold out during the early bird time in previous years.
