Product Description

Stewardship is a dirty word in most churches. Pastors preach about it knowing they must while members sit uncomfortably through the "it's-that-time-again" sermons and other appeals. Afire with God urges ministries and congregations to become stewards-in-action in all God has entrusted to us. Members go beyond thinking in terms of dollars contributed to see stewardship as becoming living examples of the gospel.

"Real stewardship is radical, which means going to the roots of our faith," writes Schwarzentraub. "If we take stewardship seriously---and joyfully---it won't be just another addition to the same old programs we've been doing in our congregations. It will change our thinking, acting and imagining. And it will change our vision of ministry, working from the inside out." The author includes examples for faithful stewardship of the earth, ways to reinvigorate stewardship in worship, long-range planning ideas and plans for individual ministry growth.

Schwarzentraub will lead you to a spirited stewardship that embraces every dimension of life and alters your ideas about the topic: converting the noun steward into a verb! Transform who you are becoming and what you can do in the world.

Betsey Schwarzentraub is director of stewardship development for the California-Nevada United Methodist Foundation, and the author of many articles about stewardship and development. An ordained clergy member of the California-Nevada Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, Schwarzentraub leads workshops and training events across the US. Schwarzentraub earned her doctorate from San Francisco Theological Seminary and is the recipient of the Outstanding Stewardship Educator Award given by the Christian Stewardship Association.
