UT FCS experts
train faith leaders
In times of personal crisis, many people turn to their faith. The same sometimes happens when facing financial hardships.
Many people look to their places of worship for help. But sometimes spiritual leaders don’t believe they’re qualified to give advice about money.
To assist faith leaders in this area, University of Tennessee Extension Family and Consumer Sciences experts will offer a two-day workshop titled “Responding to Financial Crisis – Tough Times, Tough Choices.” The event is presented in collaboration with the Coalition for the Integration of Faith and Finances.
The workshop will be May 2 and 3, at the Church Street United Methodist Church, located at 900 Henley Street in Knoxville. To register, contact Barbara Metzger with UT Extension at 865-974-1364 or bmetzge1@utk.edu
