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&mdash;"Personal Stewardship Worksheet" and "Writing Your Money Autobiography"&mdash;that congregants can take on their own time to help them meditate on the idea of stewardship.
