Stewardship teaches that all that we have and all that we are is a gift from God. We are the stewards – not only of our financial resources, but also of this created earth, our time, our talents, our families, our relationships, life itself, but most importantly of God’s word. Christian stewardship is using these gifts God has given us, to do the work God is calling us to do.
Legacy giving (planned giving) is the ultimate stewardship
It is the way in which you dispose of the assets you’ve accumulated during your lifetime–who will use your “stuff” when you no longer need it? It is the opportunity to leave a gift that constitutes a legacy to generations yet unborn and a final witness to those who you hold most dear. Ninety percent of these types of gifts are simple gifts made through wills. Frequently these gifts go to sustain missions and ministries that have blessed your life, or they may be intended to create new mission or ministry.
