6 Formational Needs for Stewardship Education Time, Talent, Treasure Baptismal Call and commitment Recognition stewardship is counter cultural with the focus on community and relationship

7 Formational Needs for Stewardship We are caretakers of, not owners of. Time in prayer is stewardship. Discernment of Gifts: you don’t have to be the best at something to have a talent. Get a life, don’t spend all your time at church.

8 Responsibilities of Parishes Stewardship: A Disciples Response “Parishes must be true communities of faith within which this Christian way of life is learned and practiced. Sound business practice is a fundamental of good stewardship, and stewardship as it relates to church finances must include the most stringent ethical, legal, and fiscal standards. That requires several things: pastors and parish staff must be open, consultative, collegial, and accountable in the conduct of affairs...

9 Responsibilities of Parishioners Stewardship: A Disciples Response... Parishioners must accept responsibility for their parishes and contribute generously – both money and personal service – to their programs and projects. The success or failure of parish programs, the vitality of parish life or its absence, the ability or inability of a parish to render needed services to its members and the community depend upon all.”
