Guidelines for Leading Your Congregation 2009-2012 - Stewardship

Yes, It’s about Money, but a whole Lot More--Using God’s Resources Responsibly
$2.95

“The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Local churches provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs” (The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church, 2008, ¶120.

Stewardship

Local church members join with the promise to uphold the church with “prayers, presence, gifts, and service.” The ministry of stewardship is concerned with the appropriate employment of the fruits of that pledge throughout the ministries of the church. Look for this and more:

  • A biblical/theological basis for the ministry of stewardship
  • What is stewardship and how are members also “stewards”
  • Responsibilities of the chairperson of stewardship
  • Forming good stewards in the congregation
  • A model for year-round stewardship
  • The ministry of money, finance, giving, and generosity

The twenty-six Guidelines cover church leadership areas including Church Council and Small Membership Church, the administrative areas of Finance and Trustees, and ministry areas focused on nurture, outreach, and witness including Worship, Evangelism, Stewardship, and Christian Education, age-level ministries, Communications, and more.
