“For if the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has – not according to what one does not have.”
2 Corinthians 8:12
In last year’s gathering we explored faith in its many expressions.
This year our exploration will continue as we gather to discover our gifts – the ones we’ve been blessed with, as well as the ones we can give to bless others. Join us for a fun morning of fellowship as we learn more about our faith and our life together.
Our speaker this year will be Mr. David Rushton. He worked as a Consultant in Stewardship, Planned Giving and Congregational Development for General Synod (Anglican Church of Canada) and for the Dioceses of New Westminster (for about 18 years) and British Columbia (for about a year). He has taught stewardship and planned giving in every parish in the Diocese (including at St. Stephen’s), and most parishes in the Diocese of Caledonia and on Vancouver Island.
Mr. Rushton has also chaired the Diocesan Stewardship Committee and the Diocesan Planned Giving Committee. He was the Canadian member of the Organizing Committee of the only ever International (CAN/UK/US) stewardship conference, and a member of the Board of Directors of TENS (The Episcopal Network for Stewardship) for six years
Mr. Rushton is a member of St. David’s Anglican, Tsawwassen, and has served as a Bishop’s Warden twice.
