A STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM FOR CONGREGATIONS SEEKING TO:
Stabilize and grow financial giving
Teach Biblical stewardship principles
Help members discover generosity
Build building a foundation for a generous culture
EXPECTED RESULTS AND PROGRAM COST
The program aims for participating congregations to see at least a 3-5% increase above current actual revenue. At the same time, this program will assist in maximizing 2023 year-end giving.
Here is what one stewardship leader had to say about participation in BCG 2022:
“The Best thing was the personal stories that we told—outcome and generosity stories were told in worship. We have known each other for a long time, but putting each person intentionally in context for what this ministry means pulled us together. Our challenge was an inherited culture that we haven’t done this before. There were many naysayers and this was our first appeal since 2018. We received a $500 challenge grant to get intents back and got 48 cards. Intended giving is up $11,500 which is great for us! We were positive and put things in much more positive language. Good to have a clear process and not have to create everything from scratch. We are very grateful for the support!
