Report on January 2015 Meeting of Elected Bodies

January 8, 2015

The Episcopal Church in Minnesota is excited to announce our continued partnership with The Episcopal Network for Stewardship (TENS) thanks the generous sponsorship of St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral.

TENS is an association of church leaders who understand, practice, and proclaim God’s call to generosity. TENS’ purpose is to inspire generosity and faithful discipleship, and their vision is to provide training and resources for stewardship leaders across The Episcopal Church and beyond, around the following core competencies:

  • Training clergy and lay leaders in the spirituality of money, and the skills required to address questions of money in the congregation;
  • Providing targeted stewardship leadership training for clergy and seminarians, at seminaries and at the diocesan level, including both the theology and the practice of stewardship;
  • Mentoring a new generation of stewardship leaders, with special attention to youth, young adults, Generation Xers, and newly ordained clergy;
  • Developing and utilizing methods of providing resources using web-based and other electronic techniques.

With this membership, all faith communities within ECMN will have access to all of the materials that TENS provides for stewardship.
