Have you ever dreaded stewardship season—or seen it as simply a means to an end, or a way to pay your bills? Do you have a love/hate relationship with fundraising? Do you avoid discussing money at all costs—even though Jesus talked more about money and possessions than about prayer?

Whether you’re a new pastor leading your first stewardship campaign or you’re a seasoned faith leader looking for a fresh approach, this toolkit is designed to educate you and your team on best practices and invite you to dig deep into your money stories. This three-part toolkit provides educational and spiritual formation tools so that you can gain clarity around your mission, heal what holds you back, and live out God’s money story more fully and faithfully.

About the toolkit:

This is a three-part resource specifically for clergy, stewardship committees, staff, and volunteers who lead the stewardship and fundraising efforts in your community. Part educational and part spiritual formation, this toolkit will help you discern and write your personal and communal money stories then take action to best live out your mission and values.

Here’s how we suggest you implement these tools:

  1. EDUCATION:
    Print and distribute copies of the Practical Guide to Stewardship to members of your staff and leadership to learn and discuss best practices for faith-based fundraising.

  2. SPIRITUAL FORMATION:
    With a small group of your leadership (perhaps your stewardship committee or campaign team), use our preparation materials (the Your Money Story Workbook and the Your Community’s Money Story Curriculum Guide) as spiritual formation prior to getting started with your campaign.
