How to Strengthen Stewardship in Your Church



60-Minute “Live” Webinar with PowerPoint slides

Thursday, Feb 13, 2014 / 12pmET / 11amCT / 10amMT / 9amPT


We’re always interested in learning “next steps” for strengthening the role of stewardship in our churches. Sometimes a review of the basics is helpful. Often we are introduced to a new idea which we can implement to encourage or help develop “good stewards.” We may even need to make some structural or organizational changes in the way we provide leadership for our efforts.

Together, in this webinar we will…

  • Explore your Church Vision
  • Examine your approach to Stewardship Education
  • Review Church Relationships and Routines
  • Look at the Effectiveness of Internal Structures
  • Document the need for a Comprehensive Plan
