Plan a Stewardship Workshop
or Seminar at Your Church
Thank you to Rev. Kretschmar, Jim Bartel and all the members of St. Paul, Sheboygan for attending the Legacy Planning Bible Study on May 3rd.

I also enjoyed the opportunity to present at Bethlehem, Wales on April 19th. Pastor Behnke and the members were engaged in the topic of stewardship, how planning is good stewardship and it's Biblical principals.
