Christians are not exempt from dealing with financial management and stewardship issues. Biblical principles relating to personal finances are found throughout Scripture. The use of money is such a common occurrence in everyday living one would expect the Bible to have some directions and guidelines. In fact, there are about 2,350 verses in the Bible that talk about money and material possessions – 16 out of the 38 parables in the Gospels deal with these issues.
Radical Stewardship is a 35-40 minute seminar that presents Biblical principles dealing with budgeting, debt reduction, money management, retirement and estate planning. It is a practical, easy-to-understand talk everyone in the church can relate to no matter what stage of life or financial status. Stewardship Services cares about families and their Biblical understanding of financial matters, and want to help those in our churches plan effectively for the future. We recognize the need for a diverse set of tools to help establish and maintain healthy stewardship and achieve godly goals in all aspects of family life. Radical Stewardship is presented by one of our Stewardship representatives on a Sunday morning in the local church.
Statistics tell us that more than half of Canadian adults do not have a financial plan and a written will. On request following the presentation, we assist constituents with writing of personal wills and Power of Attorney documents free of charge.
Stewardship Services offers various ways to assist those in our local churches with planned giving:
It is the goal of Stewardship Services to bless our churches and constituents as we incorporate Biblical stewardship principles with financial planning decisions in all aspects of their lives.
