The Stewardship Academy course is led by the Rev. Burt Brooks, who is an Elder in the United Methodist Church and is our Director of Stewardship & Outreach. Over 300 pastors, church staff, and laity have benefitted from taking this course. It is funded by TUMCU, and there is no charge for participation. A .5 CEU is available for those who attend all the sessions and complete the short assignments. The course would be very helpful to key staff and lay people who have responsibilities in these areas.
