The Rev. David J. Wood is senior minister of Glencoe Union Church in Glencoe, Ill. An ordained American Baptist pastor, he has served various congregations for the past 25 years, including churches in Maine; Paris, France; Kentucky; and Connecticut.

A free toolkit from the “Shifting Ground” initiative, “Let’s Talk About Resources” uses case studies, games and reflective discussion questions to facilitate creative conversations about how congregations can use their resources in service to their local community.
It can be used online or in person. These resources were co-created by Lake Institute on Faith & Giving and the innovative design team at RootedGood.
