Leaving a Lasting Legacy

Presentations and Preaching

The Kansas Area United Methodist Foundation offers a variety of presentations throughout the year. In addition, Foundation staff are available to preach in weekend church services. If you are interested in a staff member preaching or presenting for your church/organization, please let us know through completing this form or contacting our office. 



The Foundation offers Leaving a Lasting Legacy regional church training workshops to help equip pastors and lay persons to begin and/or grow their Planning Giving Program. A Legacy Ministry (Endowment Ministry) is about inviting persons of your congregation to leave a lasting legacy through a planned gift. This ministry is based on the belief that God is still at work in the community and by giving generously you can change lives of those who will come after you.

Workshop will be held via an online platform from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. There will be a 30-minute break for lunch. Workshops will be held on:

                   April 1 – online
                   April 14 – online

Registration is currently open. Click here to register for a workshop.



Our mission is to strengthen churches and individuals to be financially healthy. Staff are available to preach during weekend services throughout the year on God’s call in our lives to be a generous people. The message can focus either on leaving a lasting legacy or on annual stewardship.
