Register to join the Financial Well-Being group just for clergy of the Dakotas and Minnesota Annual Conferences.

This new opportunity begins Thursday, April 15 for 8 weeks from 12:30 – 2 CDT (90 min) and will lead you through an exploration of topics around cash flow, money mechanics, insurance and asset protection, wills and legacy planning, setting and adhering to financial goals and plans, money beliefs, money in relationships, financial alignment with personal values and life purpose, and ways to reduce financial stress and increase financial satisfaction.

The leader and facilitator, Sarah Swantner, owner of Black Hills Integrative Counseling and Coaching, is a professional financial counselor (CFP) and has been working with our Area clergy in groups and individually over the last two years. Register now as space is limited. Contact Diane Owen with any questions.

Here are what pastors are saying about the recent clergy financial well-being group:
"This seminar helps you to think differently about money management. It goes beyond offering nuts and bolts to helping you to examine what shaped your perspectives about money and spending. This examination helped me to develop new healthier narratives.”  –Participating Pastor 
“This group gave me an opportunity to build on the work that I've done with my financial planner and build relationships with colleagues in a confidential environment.The sessions were an excellent opportunity to work on our financial goals and questions together. I looked forward to these weekly meetings and the on-going goals and education they provided.  We had top notch facilitation and I'm grateful for the whole experience.”  –Pastor Max Richter, Champlin UMC
“The time in our finance class filled us with information and questions on what stages are next, what still needs to be done, and how best to accomplish those things. The intimacy in our gathering as a small group was very helpful in walking the journey together. I have a list of things to do in building a better path toward retirement, investments and the messages I grew up with around money.”  –Pastor Linda McCollough, First UMC, Red Wing
