The Church Stewardship team assists churches in addressing the principles of Biblical stewardship with the emphasis of achieving the ministry goals and objectives God has placed before you. We assist individuals and congregations to be faithful stewards of God’s resources in the task of Christian stewardship.
The staff of the Stewardship office is available to meet with individuals to assist in working on their personal budget and budget goals.
Church Budget Consultations
The staff of the Stewardship Office is available to work with Pastors and other church leaders to develop a stewardship program to meet needs of your church. Many times this means utilizing available resources. At other times it requires developing resources for a specific need.
Church Stewardship Emphasis
Although stewardship should be part of the ongoing discipleship ministry of your church, but periodically there is a need for a special emphasis. This is usually three to six-weeks. All can be tailored to fit your unique needs to increase the stewardship level of your congregation.
Church Stewardship Resources
Teaching stewardship is an ongoing process that requires numerous methods. Providing printed reminders can be an important tool in this task. Brochures, bulletin inserts, devotion guides, books, and PowerPoint presentations are available.
Church budgets can be complicated. Online tools are available to help set up or compare church budgets, and also for Church Treasurers to have a reference tool. The Church Budget Template can be used to evaluate your current budget or to develop a new budget. A sample budget process is available.
Children Bible Studies
The Bible is the primary resource for spiritual and practical guidance for faithful stewardship. We offer one seminar, Managing the Master’s Money, along with other Bible studies that will guide believers to discover stewardship principles.
Financial Truth: Guiding Principles from God’s Word has been developed to help whose who have not been able to attend one of the seminars. However, it is also a good resource for those who have experienced the seminar, but wish further teaching and help with personal finances. The material is designed to be used in a small group study or by an individual.
Stewardship is much broader than money management. Personal stewardship is really discipleship. It includes every aspect of the Christian life. It is important to understand that God is the owner of all creation. Our role is to manage His resources. We offer online and printed resources to assist in personal stewardship.
United We Build helps churches raise money for purchasing land and building, often an expense that a church cannot afford without a special campaign.
