Financial Stewardship

The vision of the North Carolina Synod is to invest in, inspire and equip steward leaders and congregations, creating a culture of generosity for the sake of God’s mission. Our Synod has an active table of steward leaders who stand ready to help leaders and congregations. Let me know if you are interested in one of our programs or if there is a stewardship need you have that these programs do not address.

Stewardship for all Seasons – a year-round stewardship program with mentoring from Pastor Mike Ward

 

Faith+Finances+Freedom – This is the program developed after extensive research of leaders in our Synod, designed to address the economic challenges facing rostered leaders. The program has Three Ways to Win: We will assist in promoting Healthy Leaders who will in turn lead Vital Congregations who in turn will contribute to Fourishing Communities. The major elements of Faith + Finances + Freedom are as follows:

Lifeline Distribution Fund – designed to alleviate education debt, credit card debt, emergency needs, retirement savings, emergency savings, and partnering congregations who are interested in affording a full-time pastor.

  • Educating rostered leaders about financial well-being through programs like Financial Peace University, Good $ense and free financial planning
  • Educating lay leaders in congregations about financial well-being through a series of videos called “Mike at the Mic”; and a pre-assembly Workshop in 2017 for church treasurers and financial secretaries.
