Stewards by Design is a conference designed to help congregations discover how to nurture generous giving and expand their ministry. Participants explore how stewardship is not just a financial matter but is a spiritual matter concerned with all aspects of life. The team will begin to develop a plan designed for their unique congregation as they learn how to:
- Encourage people to invest more generously in the mission to which God calls us
- Move from budget-driven to mission-driven congregation
- Move beyond a survival mentality that focuses on conserving, holding, protecting and preserving and discover ways to nurture faithful giving and abundant living
- Unlock the twelve keys to an effective church
- Make generous giving an ongoing, joyful congregational experience.
