Cliff ChristopherClif Christopher, Keynote Speaker

“Once I had firmly grounded myself in stewardship theology, I would take a hard, practical look at myself. If I believe this, then am I living it? I would explore how I have responded to material possessions in my life and decide what needs to stay and what needs to go. I would specifically explore the role debt is playing in my life and whether it is scriptural or something I need forgiveness for and transformation with. I would get my own giving house in order around the theology I had come to believe is true.”

Bruce CaldwellBishop Bruce Caldwell, Keynote Speaker

“The Episcopal diocese of Wyoming, went about revitalizing the church in small communities with very limited financial resources. We experienced both the challenges and joys of a $60,000,000.00 gift. How do we manage resources so that they do not inhibit, but enhance the mission and ministry of the Church? How do we live with little, and how do we live with much?”

Emily ScottEmily Scott, Conference Musician

“I learned to read music as a small child, following along with the hymns in the church where I was raised. As a teenager, I continued to explore performance and music, compelled by the power of music to express that for which we cannot find words. Teaching music from the oral tradition, I’m able to connect with others through sight, gesture, and voice, equipping all the saints to use their voices to praise God, as they discover harmony, dissonance, pattern and rhythm — all those things that bind us together as the body of Christ.”
