In this issue from LCMS’ Stewardship Ministry, an updated list of objectives for stewardship ministry is provided. The goals listed are practical and functional and are meant to be applied to situations that are both internal and external. The list’s intended audience is individuals, families and congregations. The Board of Stewardship has adopted these objectives and pray they can be a much-needed start for discussion about this important topic.
Training equips a range of leaders to help members practice good stewardship in charitable planning for the benefit of families and ministries.
Sharing your faith and reaching out to others: black, white, Hispanic — everyone! — was a major focus of the LCMS Black Ministry Family Convocation.
Rev. Heath Curtis, coordinator for LCMS Stewardship Ministry, discusses the Stewardship Ministry, its redesigned website (www.lcms.org/stewardship) and the resources available to pastors and congregations during an interview on KFUO-AM.
The resources include short essays, Bible studies, sermon and pastoral aids, tips, how-tos, bulletin inserts and newsletter articles.
At its May 30-31 meeting, the Synod’s Board for National Mission continues work on refining policies and on a theological statement for mission.
