Attention CSN members,
The 2011 CSN Annual Forum is just around the corner. It will be hosted February 7-9th at the brand new Gateway Church campus in Southlake Texas. This will be our best forum yet and here is why. The 2011 forum is designed to highlight innovative new ideas and wrap up by creating unique plans for each church. I promise this event will recharge your stewardship ministry batteries with content and relational connections!

The theme for this year's forum is Connect and Equip and here is what is included:


CSN Chairman Gunnar Johnson will deliver a compelling vision for how we can impact the Body of Christ though our local stewardship movement. Starting within our local church, spiraling outward to our community then beyond, God has given us tools to significantly impact our generation for Christ.Encouragement: Pastor Robert Morris is Gateway Church’s Senior Pastor and author of the best selling generosity book, “The Blessed Life”. He also has a primetime television program seen in 80 million homes and more than 200 countries around the world on the Daystar Network, Thursday’s at 9:00 CST. Pastor Robert lives a life of radical generosity having given away everything he owns in his 20’s, 30’s and again in his 40’s. He is a big fan of our movement because extravagant generosity is his life message. His story about developing into a radically generous follower of Christ will encourage and inspire anyone with a heart for God.


Demystifying Facebook and Twitter for the sake of the gospel. Learn to use these tools to maximize your stewardship ministry. Author and Social media consultant Anthony Coppedge will bring entertaining training to give you a better grasp of each tool.


Strength Finders coach Allan Kelsey with reveal how to use your natural leadership strengths to develop a team that maximizes everyone’s strengths. Make sure you know your Top 5 Strengths. If you have not taken Strength Finders please purchase Strength Finder 2.0 at your favorite local bookstore and take the online assessment in the back of the book. We will utilize our top 5 strengths in an all-together leadership development workshop Tuesday afternoon.


Pastor Bob Hamp is in charge of what we call Freedom Ministry at Gateway Church and the author of the book, “Think Differently”.  He was a counselor in private practice for sixteen years, and learned a great deal trying to help people live the life they want.  Freedom is the ability to live life as the person you are created and redeemed to be, that is also the goal of stewardship ministry.


The Leadership Network team will help us tie together the forums training and ideas in our last afternoon with a workshop. We will receive coaching on building a strategic plan through the last afternoon session.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran or new to stewardship ministry you will take back new innovations to implement.
