Church Stewardship Emphasis
Although stewardship should be part of the ongoing discipleship ministry of your church, 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.
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.
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.
This guide 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.
Teaching stewardship is an ongoing process and printed reminders can be an important tool in this task. Using brochures that give short, insightful messages will encourage your church members to think about the stewardship implications of their daily actions.
