Stewardship

“The fundamental reason for all acts of stewardship—gratitude for the abundance we have been given.”
                                       - Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori

The ministry of stewardship is rooted in the understanding that the entirety of our life is a gift from God.  The most precious gift is God’s self-gift, the person of Jesus Christ who came so that we may know life abundant.

Stewardship is a response of discipleship, an ordering of life that puts all we have under Christ’s rule—our time, our money, our relationships.  Jesus is not interested in just ten percent. Jesus wants one hundred percent of our lives.  The essence of stewardship formation asks: How do we respond?

The stewardship journey is one of struggle, hope and transformation. Here, you will find a collection of resources to equip stewardship leaders in their journey of creating cultures of gratitude and generosity—for all that has been given.


Faith in Action
Thankfulness and stewardship are practiced all year round, not just during autumn pledge campaigns and holidays. This series of monthly ads, offered in both web- and print-ready formats, reminds us to be thankful stewards throughout the year.
