The Christian Stewardship Association used this grant to convene a gathering of stewardship leaders to explore the lessons learned from recent Lilly Endowment-funded research on religious giving. The Association, a professional society of evangelical Protestants engaged in fund-raising for religious causes, co-sponsored these conversations with the Ecumenical Center for Stewardship Studies and the National Catholic Stewardship Conference. Representatives from five denominations were present: Assemblies of God, Southern Baptist Convention, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Roman Catholic Church.
