Developing a Culture of Stewardship
Money: it's the consistent question mark in the life of many churches. Do we talk about it too much? Do we talk about it enough? How do we talk about it without making people feel like they're being pumped for all they have? The Bible has a lot to say about money, and if we're not addressing it well we're depriving our people—and our churches—of all that God has for our lives, and our finances.

This 21-page resource, "Developing a Culture of Stewardship", is designed to help you address the spiritual implications of money and create a church culture that values joyful, sacrifical giving.
