The purpose of this Web site
is to provide resources for congregations as they elevate (make stewardship
a high priority) and enlarge (see stewardship as all of life) stewardship
among their members.
Faith Aflame is a congregational process designed to change the stewardship culture. To help those interested in the process we are introducing a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section on this web site. These questions will assist in describing how a congregation can be involved in this new and exciting stewardship opportunity. Click on "FAQs" to visit this new section. (Visitors can ask their own questions also.)
The vision for stewardship in The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod
is that the stewardship culture in every congregation would be one where
every professional church worker, every man, women, and child would know
that they are God’s steward by His grace, live as His disciples,
and manage the gifts He entrusts to them with joy and generosity—all
so that His purposes would be accomplished and His mission enhanced.
Christian stewardship is defined as the free and joyous activity of
the child of God and God’s family, the church, in managing all
of life and life’s resources for God’s purposes.
This website is provided by Stewardship Ministry of District and Congregational
Services of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. New resources will
be added regularly.
