“History in the Making” with the Christian Stewardship Network

 

Blurred people in grand opening event hall, business concept.

At the end of February, many church leaders from across the country gathered in Dallas, TX to share their passion for encouraging their communities to better stewardship and greater generosity. I was raised in Texas, so any excuse to return is good to me, but this was more than I expected. As I heard their vision, I felt a kindred spirit and an excitement grow in my heart. These are my people.

The vision they cast for stewardship as the new vehicle for discipleship resonated with me.

I talk to churches all the time, and I am shocked at how many only talk about stewardship once a year or less. How is that possible? To me, the management of my whole life – my time, my talent, my treasure, my testimony, my relationships – how I juggle all those balls is really about living my faith. It’s a spiritual struggle, and it’s so easy for me to live outside of the truth I know. The battle ground is within my own heart and in the culture around me, and I need accountability to be reminded that my life is not my own. All I have is God’s, and it’s easy for me to forget.

I know I am not alone. Most of the churches I regularly speak with could benefit from this view of stewardship. That’s why I want to share with you about this organization. The Christian Stewardship Network is a great place to get resources, to connect with other church leaders, and to learn about stewardship as discipleship.
