Promoting Good Stewardship
The Stewardship Department of the North England Conference exists to inform instruct and promote to our membership and the wider community our obligations to God as creator and owner of all.
Four Pillars of Stewardship
The doctrine of Stewardship rests on four pillars:
Hence we are answerable to him for our use of his creation.
As a trustee I have no rights only obligations; hence I must relate to creation in a way that will please its owner.
Should be given as a sign of God's ownership & man's Stewardship.
Should be used for God's glory and man's good.
Much More Than Money
Stewardship involves money but it is much more than money, it involves every aspect of our lives, including:
- Temple / Body
Therefore every decision and choice that we make effectively is a spiritual decision, because of the fact of our accountability to God.
Facilitating Local Churches
The North England Stewardship Department conducts Seminars, discussions and religious lectures. We seek to instruct and educate the church community as to its obligations to God and how they can faithfully and effectively discharge their Trust in relation to their resources not just while they are alive but when they die.
