In the style of a radio show The Three Wise Guys from Friends Talking Faith on WMFE, 90.7 FM, our guest “wise guys” will discuss what every development professional should know when asking for money from people of faith. 

 

The theology, philosophy, and the “do’s” and “don’ts” of the ask. We’ll “pitch the topic,” then open up the “phone lines” to hear from our listeners (you the audience). Join us for a lively and insightful “live show!”
