Too often parish leadership is inclined to leave personal stewardship to chance, the hope being that congregants want to give, know what they are giving to and give at an appropriate level.

We believe that the following programs are indeed “Best Practices” and we encourage you as parish leaders to consider these when planning how to make stewardship an everyday part of the life or your church community.
