This book deals in a practical, clear, easy-to-understand manner with the full extent of financial issues that face a church. With a comprehensive scope, this book offers a fresh perspective and fun ideas for people who may not have any financial background or experience. Each chapter suggests a creative way to handle a significant money or stewardship matter in the life of a local congregation, such as ‘Giving Styles in the Church,’ ‘Annual Giving,’ ‘Capital Campaigns,’ ‘Endowment Funds,’ and ‘Long-Range Planning.’
Most chapters feature questions for discussion that make The Big Book of Presbyterian Stewardship useful for study by stewardship committees or as a planning guide for stewardship campaigns. The final section, called ‘The Toolbox,’ is a helpful collection of inventories, chars, sample plans, and other practical resources.
