Congregational Resource Guide
Finding the right resources for your congregation
Nurturing generous living is the theme of the stewardship resources provided by the General Board of Discipleship of the United Methodist Church. Congregations that seek to grow in their stewardship ministry will find strong resources for training, church finance, year-round giving, annual and capital campaigns, and theological reflection on stewardship themes. This clearinghouse for stewardship resources offers a steady diet of new reflections, articles and worship resources. A wide variety of stewardship materials are reviewed, so that congregations can rely on a trusted source for evaluating books and other resources. Webinars are scheduled every few months, and can be accessed live for an interactive experience, or viewed at a later date. Congregational leaders can subscribe to receive a regular newsletter with new content, as well as a monthly email with offertory prayers. This is a valuable source of practical stewardship materials and conversation about current topics in this area of ministry. Consult with your own denominational body for resources specific to your tradition.
