  • Stewardship for all Seasons

Many congregations in our synod have already participated in a program called Stewardship for All Seasons (SAS) led by the Rev. Mike Ward. Results have been very robust both in terms of new giving as well as transitioning culture from scarcity to abundance. Might you consider this for your congregation? Congregations that participate in SAS have seen on average at least a 15% increase in pledges over the previous year.

THESE AMOUNTS HAVE CHANGED:
While the cost of the program is $3,550 (which includes manuals, graphic design, and consultant), the synod provides a $1,000 grant to each congregation through the generosity of the synod’s Lifeline Fund, bringing the cost down to $2,550.

The next cohort will begin May, 2019.

Pastor Mike Ward and our Director for Evangelical Mission (DEM), the Rev. Danielle DeNise, will be offering a webinar orientation about SAS in early Spring. Watch this page and synod communications for the details.
