What is The Stewardship System?
- Teach your members about the importance of stewardship—without guilt or fundraising.
- Create a year-round stewardship ministry in your church.
- Plan and execute an effective Annual Stewardship Campaign.
- Obtain easy to use, professional stewardship materials.
- Increase giving and member involvement.
The Stewardship System provides the tools--honed through years of experience and research—you need to reach the goals of having 80% of your members pledge an average gift of 5% of their income, while increasing volunteer involvement and a sense of belonging. Stewardship is about a lot more than money—it's letting God’s blessings flow through you. Your church’s ministry potential will be unleashed as your members embrace a life of stewardship, becoming generous givers of their time, talents, and treasures.
The Stewardship System is a comprehensive approach to teaching stewardship in your church so that your people grow to be generous stewards of time, talent, treasures, and relationships. The system is a monthly subscription service which provides you with a turnkey stewardship solution. The system is built around four major components of stewardship ministry that we feel each church must have in place to achieve success.
Subscribers receive the following tools in their inbox each month:
- Monthly Stewardship Committee Agenda template.
- Instruction on how to form your Stewardship Committee.
- A monthly training video to show to your stewardship committee.
- Testimony guidelines for lay speakers so they can share about their stewardship journey with your congregation.
- Weekly bulletin inserts to help you teach stewardship.
- A monthly article on stewardship to place in your church newsletter.
- All the components needed to run an effective annual stewardship campaign, including:
- a campaign manual, logo, theme, brochure, newsletters, prayer guide, and solicitation letters.
- Checklists to help you make sure you conduct all the key activities a church needs to build a culture of generosity.
- You will also receive a monthly stewardship e-newsletter from Church Development.
