STEWARDSHIP TOOLS

STEWARDSHIP ARTICLES:
Our Director for Evangelical Mission, the Reverend Blair Morgan, has written one page articles on stewardship for our synod newsletter, The ECHO, over many years. These articles are available here as a resource for whatever use you may find helpful. Feel free to adjust and edit as you might need them to fit your space or update certain facts. Most of them have a month and year at their end as a way of discerning timing – again feel free to remove if helpful.

PLEASE SEE THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE FOR THESE HELPFUL ARTICLES. 

STEWARDSHIP BOOKLETS

below you will find links to the five booklets that we have created over past years to help congregations to conduct an Annual Stewardship Campaign. Each has a theme and all of the resources a planning team would need to work through an Annual Stewardship Campaign for a congregation.

HERE is a link to a booklet entitled: A Walk with Jesus: An Annual Stewardship Response Program that is offered by the ELCA. This booklet costs $20.00 and would provide an additional option for a planning team to use if the others were not helpful for one reason or another.
