Managing the Assets of the Church: Real Estate & Innovation
In our inaugural even for our 2021-2022 webinar series, Managing the Assets of the Church, we will be speaking about Real Estate and Innovatio. , Among the many assets entrusted to the Church, real estate is possibly the most visible and the most affected by changing demographics, economics, and market trends. We’re going to be speaking with experts in the field who are working on the ground to reimagine and revitalize Church properties in a way that better serves our apostolic and evangelical needs, while providing much-needed revenue for the Church.
