Stewardship WISDOM from WISDEM
(Western Iowa Synod Director for Evangelical Mission)
We all know that Evangelical Mission cannot happen without resources. Most will also acknowledge that if we fail to plan evangelical mission, we can plan to fail. It is important that Christians begin to understand that being good stewards of all that God has given us is a Spiritual matter. How do we respond to God's call to serve and love our neighbors? We faithfully steward the gifts that God has so abundantly given to us. The following resources are mean to assist you in stewardship planning in your congregation or ministry. If you need assistance or would like someone to come to a stewardship planning meeting in your congregation, please contact Pastor Jeff Ungs at (712) 732-4968, ext 449.
