In case you missed it, in the previous post, Adam Copeland shared that he’s moving on from the Center for Stewardship Leaders in order to pursue a new vocation.
It has been a great privilege to serve as editor for the Center for Stewardship Leaders newsletter the past four years. The ministry of stewardship leadership is an essential calling for the church, perhaps now more than ever. My personal vocation, however, is shifting as I’ve accepted a position at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. The Rev. Catherine Malotky, Grant and Project Manager at the CSL, will take over as newsletter editor in the coming weeks. Catherine’s passion for stewardship is vast, and her knowledge runs deep. I close wishing you all the greatest blessing on your continued stewardship journey.
As Director of the Center for Stewardship Leadership, Adam Copeland helped shape a change that is bearing fruit following his departure. I, with you, am a beneficiary of this good work and am thrilled to introduce you to Faith+Lead, the new digital home for the Center for Stewardship Leaders.
More than a decade ago, wise leaders from the seminary launched a weekly stewardship e-newsletter. Since then, we have shared hundreds of articles to support you as a stewardship leader, many of which still reside in our robust archive.
The seminary is now adding to the good work of the Center for Stewardship Leaders. We’ve launched a new learning hub, Faith+Lead, where Christian public leaders discover how to deepen spiritual formation, build community, faithfully innovate, welcome diversity, form disciples, and create and manage new forms of ministry.
Since the ministry of stewardship leadership covers so much of the great work of Faith+Lead, we are joining forces so our newsletter content is available to many more than those who receive these weekly emails.
What does that mean for you, a recipient of the Center’s newsletter? Well, first, our newsletter continues. You do not need to do anything to update your subscription – but you’ll notice that the sender of email is now firstname.lastname@example.org. Update your safe-sender list accordingly. The stewardship newsletter will continue to be edited by staff at the Center for Stewardship Leaders.
You’ll notice the newsletter has a new look, including links to other great Faith+Lead resources. We hope it continues to support your stewardship ministry for many years to come.
Finally, we invite you to share the word about Faith+Lead and check out our offerings beyond stewardship by browsing Faith+Lead’s blog.
