Erin Weber-Johnson is the Program Director of Strategic Resources at the the Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF). She began at ECF as a capital campaign consultant in 2009. In her current capacity she works with Episcopal leaders to faithfully answer the following questions, “What is God calling this organization to be/do?” and “How do we respond?” In answering these questions, Erin provides financial, strategic, and leadership resources through a broad range of services. She has facilitated national and diocesan workshops, vestry retreats and live webinars on annual giving, volunteer engagement, generational giving characteristics, and debt retirement.
Utilizing a year-round stewardship model, Erin works with parishes on annual giving, planned giving and has successfully completed capital campaigns widely ranging in size. In 2015, she led a creative team to develop a diagnostic assessment tool for congregations in determining where to strategically begin utilizing resources in the area of leadership, finance, and vision/planning. This tool will be used to create individualized plans for providing support while parishes seek to live into their calling.
Erin spends a great deal of time thinking about what keeps faith communities healthy and sustainable. Erin worked as a grants officer at Trinity Wall Street in New York City from 2009-2013. Prior to joining ECF, she worked at the General Theological Seminary. Erin also previously served as missionary of the Episcopal Church and holds a Master’s degree in Public Administration from New York University. She is a member of St. John the Evangelist Church in St. Paul, MN.
