How does your church talk about money? And who's in charge of helping people consider what they can give to ministry?

This 29-page resource outlines how a stewardship committee in your church might look. There are also a variety of sample forms to adapt for your needs, like giving invitation letters and pledge forms. Then you will find a couple of exercises—"Personal Stewardship Worksheet" and "Writing Your Money Autobiography"—that congregants can take on their own time to help them meditate on the idea of stewardship. NOTE: You have permission to make up to 1,000 copies of this resource to be distributed in a church or educational setting.
