Online Stewardship Course is now live!
It’s no secret that deacons often struggle with how they can help their church “excel in the grace of giving” (2 Corinthians 8:7).
In order to address these challenges, a partnership with Christian Stewardship Services and the CRCNA in Canada was struck in late 2019/early 2020 to launch a Stewardship Pilot Project, headed by Diaconal Ministries’ Karla Winham.
The pilot project was designed to help “raise the stewardship bar” and help deacons increase their churches’ awareness of the Biblical principles of stewardship and to help them live those principles out in practical, measurable ways. A letter was sent to every CRC in Canada, seeking a small number of congregations who would participate in the project over a two-year period. Participating churches would be asked to convene a Stewardship Team of 3-5 people who were passionate about stewardship to take the lead for the duration of the project.
Unfortunately, a global pandemic had other plans!
So, like with so many other ministries and initiatives, a pivot was required! A new plan was needed in order to still deliver the same outcomes to churches across Canada who were longing for guidance and support in the area of stewardship.
After much work and collaboration, Diaconal Ministries is excited to share that a brand new, online, self-guided Stewardship Course is now live on the CRCNA's learning portal!
