Generosity Conference


Cultivating a culture of generosity through stewardship ministry in the church or a religious organization is vital to enabling God’s Kingdom. Creatively inviting Christians to join a ministry vision is an important challenge, given all the other organizations vying for stewardship dollars.

Attendees of the Generosity & Stewardship Conference, held from Sunday, Aug. 6-Wednesday, Aug. 9 in Lakeside Chautauqua, will learn specific tools for equipping congregations or religious organizations in their ability to go beyond a tithe.

Lakeside will present this conference as an opportunity to support persons desiring lives that reflect God’s call to give freely.

Each year, Lakeside Chautauqua is committed to programming excellence. With a backdrop of beauty and an abundance of spiritual opportunities, educational lectures, cultural arts performances and recreational activities, attendees will network and learn about growing the culture of generosity in their local church or organization.

Welcoming more than 150,000 guests each year, Lakeside provides a variety of accommodations to choose from and we are prepared to provide Christian hospitality during your stay.
