Q&A with the Rev. Jerry Keucher on Charging for Use of Your Church Space

This event took place on October 26, 2017. A recording of the Q&A is available below.

The Rev. Jerry Keucher recently wrote an article for ECF Vital Practices (available here) to help congregations determine the best price to charge an outside group for use of its space. He encouraged congregations to take three factors into consideration and devised a tool for helping them do so. This Q&A with Jerry will go more deeply into the issues raised in this article, and he will also be taking questions from audience members who have questions about space usage. Submit your question to Jerry by emailing your question to ECF.

This article and Q&A were made possible by the Lilly Endowment grant.The Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF) has received a three-year grant as part of Lilly Endowment’s National Initiative to Address the Economic Challenges Facing Pastoral Leaders. ECF’s grant entitled “From Economic Challenges to Transformational Opportunities” will provide lay and clergy leaders of the Episcopal Church with resources, tools and other support to help address the financial and leadership challenges of congregational ministry in the 21st century.
