Provide & Protect: New Ideas for Financial Peace and Security
This wills and estate planning presentation outlines what every adult in Texas needs in an estate plan. Learn how to provide for your family and loved ones with special needs, protect your assets, and make the best use of your charitable dollars.
This presentation is primarily for Endowment Committees. It is designed to provide practical ideas to help develop a year-round plan to promote and develop an endowment fund and to foster planned gifts from the church membership.
This program explores new, innovative and proven ways to support your church and charities.
When Your Church Needs to Build
In this seminar we review the process of building new facilities and remodeling or expanding existing facilities. The United Methodist procedures as listed in the Book of Discipline are also reviewed. Other topics covered include: working with an architect, obtaining loans, managing capital fund campaigns and working hand in hand with the Texas Annual Conference Center for Congregational Excellence.
Heartspring would be happy to work with you to create a special presentation to fit the particular goals and needs of your endowment, investment, finance, or other leadership committee. Contact us today to discuss your ideas and schedule a consultation.
