The Effective Use of Individual and Community Time, Talent and Treasure
In a healthy congregation, stewardship and generosity are nurtured. There is a positive approach for teaching, modeling and encouraging stewardship. A well-organized laity understands, demonstrates and uses total stewardship practices.
Members are committed to support the congregation with time, talent and treasure and work to discover and develop their gifts of service and use them for ministry.
Members are aware of, and appreciate, the spiritual gifts of members and the congregation; and, there are more than enough willing volunteers who use their time and talents for mission and ministry. Members understand the real needs for ministry and respond financially with ongoing support. There is financial stability and transparency and adequate resources and facilities for ministry. There is good stewardship of resources; and, the congregation understands and faces the costs necessary for change and growth.
