All Christians are called to be faithful stewards of their God-given resources. The webpages here are designed to support and encourage Christian stewardship, which The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod describes as “the free and joyous activity of the child of God and God’s family, the church, in managing life and all of life’s resources.”
Browse around, and you’ll find information on events, congregational stewardship programs, Bible studies, personal stewardship, and financial aid for church workers and college students pursuing church work. If you have questions about stewardship, please don’t hesitate to contact us in the District Office.
