Stewardship is more than a Christian responsibility to money and possessions; it begins with the acknowledging that God is the owner of everything. Therefore, being a faithful steward involves all aspects of life including time, health, relationships, environment, our spiritual lives, and finances. Because of stewardship ministry's emphasis on biblical money management principles, we provide in-service workshops, group financial studies, lay budget counseling, monthly bulletins to congregations, as well as personal finance resources to educate on the blessings of giving and the joy of debt-free living. Our goal is that each member seeks Christ and applies the Biblical principles of stewardship to everything that affects their lives.

Tithe envelopes are available in both English and Spanish for any churches that want to use them.

I believe the tithe envelope’s message should be more than just a reminder to church members to be good Christian stewards. It should convey and encourage an attitude of overflowing joy in our giving. When we return our tithes and offerings to God, we are saying thank you to our Heavenly Father for the blessings of life and responding to Him as the source of every good thing.

Resources

Personal Giving Plan

The North American Division has adopted the Personal Giving Plan. A key component of the plan is encouraging members to be systematic in giving a percentage of their income to support the worldwide work of the Seventh-day Adventist Church—all through one offering, a World Budget offering. The information from the North American Division gives a percentage breakdown of the entities and ministries supported by World Budget giving.

Stewpot

Stewpot motto: "A potpourri of practical ideas to help you become a better steward." The Stewpot is a brochure distributed on a monthly basis by your local church. It's usually found as a bulletin insert.

The PDF version is available for churches wishing to make copies for their members. It is available in English, Spanish and French, and Portuguese (upon request).
