Essence of Stewardship
Offering our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and our witness
- The Lord has blessed me and I will be more active in mission efforts and service projects.
- I will visit our homebound members in my Circle and others more frequently.
- I will assist in any capacity to grow, coach and maintain new members.
- I will use my God-given abilities to support Shiloh, my community, and those in need.
- I will extend my faith beyond worship and engage the community.
- I am here for a purpose and I will be ready to serve Shiloh ministries when needed.
- God has richly blessed me and I will be more financially disciplined to give.
- I am blessed and will continue to tithe, or if I do not tithe, I will begin to do so.
- I am so blessed that I will commit to sacrificial giving and general offerings to the church.
Disciples as stewards
- Let us begin with being a disciple – a follower of our Lord Jesus Christ. As members of the Church, Jesus calls us to be disciples. This has astonishing implications.
- Mature disciples make a conscious decision to follow Jesus no matter what the cost.
- Christian disciples experience conversion—Life-shaping changes of mind and heart—and commit themselves to the Lord.
- Christian stewards respond in a particular way to the call to be a disciple. Stewardship has the power to shape and mold our understanding of our lives and the way in which we live.
