Trinity Church Wall Street seeks to help our partners in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion build financial sustainability for ministry through the creative development of assets. Trinity supports this work primarily through grants, training, and real estate advisory services for Anglican/Episcopal provinces, dioceses, and seminaries throughout Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Asia.
The Gift of Place 2023 Virtual Conference
Developing Church Property for Financial Capacity & Social Impact
November 15-16, 2023, 12:30-5:30pm | Online via Zoom Webinar
The Gift of Place conference is an opportunity for in-depth engagement with the Mission Real Estate Development team of Trinity Church Wall Street and other participants, on your parish’s missional calling and how your real estate could be developed to both enhance your mission work and provide sustainable financial resources to support ministry.
The virtual conference will explore how to use existing resources for mission-based projects and revenue growth through case studies and best practice takeaways. In two half-days of workshops, panels, and small-group discussions, we will deepen our understanding of financial sustainability through Mission Real Estate Development, learning from each other and from Trinity’s experience developing real estate to support ministry work.
This free conference is sponsored by Trinity Church Wall Street and the Episcopal Parish Network.
Mission Real Estate Development grants are available to support feasibility studies and construction/business projects that will generate income for ministry.
