This handbook presents a one-stop, "all-in-one" practical resource for parish stewardship practitioners. In a relaxed, informal style, the author demystifies the financial stewardship process and helps clergy, stewardship committees, and parish leaders reclaim the ministry of stewardship. It's also an excellent introduction to stewardship for seminarians.
Ponting uses a theological framework to tie together the complete landscape of parish financial stewardship. He incorporates personal money management, nurturing a culture of stewardship, working with limited volunteer availability, year-round stewardship programs, and using effective tools and techniques such as narrative budgets. He also provides practical guidance for planned giving programs, capital campaigns, and completing an audit of the state of stewardship ministry in a parish.
From Scarcity to Abundance will help facilitate productive stewardship planning and prioritizing so that your efforts will bear fruit that will last.
