If it is in serving, let him serve; if it is in teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage ... Romans 12: 7,8a

Training Events

Pilot projects are under way to support & empower Stewardship programs in churches.


  1. "What Really Matters" – based on Matt. 25: 14-30 & Gen. 4: 2b-7. Addresses questions: “Why should we be stewards? How are we to be good stewards accountable to God? And how our giving connects us with God.”
  2. "Stewardship Matters" – same as 1 but without the connection to God through our giving.
  3. "Heart for God: My Giving Matters" Gen. 4: 2b-9, Hebrews 11:4; Gen. 14:17-20; 1Chron. 29: 9&14; Luke 21:1-4 is an expansion of the 2nd part of #1 and focuses on giving by tracing 'tithing'/giving in the Bible: Cain and Abel, Abraham and Melchizedek, David, and Jesus observing the giving of the Widow and the wealthy at the temple.
  4. "Serving the Least of These: A Steward's Challenge" Matt. 25: 31-46 – a message that challenges us to engage the needy. It includes an ‘expanded offering’ that asks listeners to contribute a deliberate act of kindness for someone else that that is followed by a prayer of dedication/blessing.
  5. Planned Giving Maximizes Kingdom Benefit – Numbers 18: 21-24 – focusing on God providing for the ministry of the temple and the Levites through planned giving through "the tithe". God still chooses to bring about his Kingdom ministry through believers. Planned giving like the tithe encourages long-term investment in ongoing ministry. In the second part of the message, a CSS Client Services Representative introduces planned giving tools.
  6. Wills: The Testimony of My Life - 1Chron. 28: 1-21 – God blesses David’s plans and provides David with specific instructions that he passes on to Solomon. In the same way, our Wills should also reflect our ‘heart’s intentions’. Followed by a presentation on Will guidelines, questions and answers by a CSS Client services representative.
  7. Generous Giving/Living – 2Cor. 9:1-15. Paul’s instructions to the Corinthians in preparation for their giving and how those instructions apply to us today. Listeners are asked to Review, Reflect, Re-commit and wRite down their plans for giving to Kingdom work.
  8. Made for God, Equipped to Serve - Gen. 1: 26-27, 2 Cor. 4:4 and Matt. 25:14-30. We are made in God’s image but Christ is God’s image. God has entrusted each one of us with different talents: skills, abilities, natural aptitudes etc. for the glory of God and His Kingdom.
