Stewardship Failure Analysis

"Generosity of spirit" is the singular virtue that seems to result in a long satisfying marriage said Fr. Joe. It was 1998 and I had just met a woman who had caused me to rethink my entire long range plan. And I had asked Fr.

Stewardship on the Path of Discipleship

Gallilee

My ultimate goal is to help others along the path of discipleship, of which stewardship is a critical step. Fortunately modern research in self actualization totally supports the idea of stewardship. Our core scripture comes from 1 Peter 4: 10. "As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied Grace."  This is a directive on how to live a good life.

No matter what the year or the medium, this is the example I share, and I’ve used it again in my latest book, The Stewardship System:

Church Internet Presence Mega-Post

Whenever I wrap up a larger series, I like to gather up every post I've written on the topic and put them in one place. Considering I've spent most of this year writing about how to improve your church's online presence -- through your website, optimizing online giving, email communications, social media, and mobile offerings -- this is the post to round them up:

The Importance of Personalization to Online Giving

As more people choose to give online to churches, Church Development shares the importance of a personal connection with your potential givers.

In wrapping up this series on the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s study on why most charities fail when it comes to online giving (and what this means to the church), I’m going to share a couple of minor closing points to engage your givers.

To recap, the major points we’ve covered are as follows:

While both of these points are important, they do nothing to connect with each giver as individuals. Let’s pick that up here:
