PraiseBuildings' 3rd Annual Lunch & Learn event at Second English Lutheran Church in Baltimore was a great success. Nearly 100 guests enjoyed Famous Dave's barbeque buffet, attended two educational presentations, and took the opportunity to network with other religious leaders in the community.
President of PraiseBuildings, Stephen Ferrandi, kicked off the event with the introduction of the first presenter, Ravi Waldon of Waldon Studio Architects. Mr. Waldon, a local church leader and well-known architect, shared his expertise with guests in an informative presentation designed to help congregations avoid the pitfalls that can occur with building and renovation projects.
After lunch, speaker Erik Ely of Generis, who joined the event all the way from South Carolina, gave an inspired presentation on current trends in generosity, providing vital strategies that congregations can incorporate to promote a culture of generosity and carry out successful fund-raising campaigns.
PraiseBuildings would like to thank the guest speakers, along with Carl Swanson and Charlotte Blum, and the congregation of Second English Lutheran Church, who graciously provided the event venue. Second English Lutheran church is being offered for sale at a price of $2.4 million. Please contact Josh Halbedel for information and tours: josh@PraiseBuildings.com or 703.447.4950
