Stewardship ministry in any congregation can be strengthened by asking key questions that both assess current practices and imagine new ways to encourage generous living. Charles Lane will examine eight questions that will focus congregational stewardship ministry on God’s word and suggest year‐round practices that will engage congregants and deepen the connections between
faith and generosity.
