It is our privilege to partner with your church by providing resources and personal assistance to help create a culture of generosity through the development of biblical stewards committed to impacting the Kingdom by leveraging their time, talents, and treasure for the sake of the Gospel. Whether your desire is to have a one-Sunday stewardship revival led by our staff or a self-directed, multi-week stewardship emphasis, we can help!

Additionally, we are excited to provide all of our partnering churches with many additional tools from the Stewardship Development Association (SDA) at no cost because of your generous gifts to the Cooperative Program.
