0.2 Stewardship – Reinforce from Phase 1

Just as your pastor, staff and parish leaders needed time to become familiar with stewardship as a way of life, so will your Stewardship Core Team, as this team will be key to the establishment of this spirituality in your Family of Parishes.

Stewardship Reversed

“More than a program or once a year report to the parish, stewardship is fostered as a spiritual way of life and becomes an expression of discipleship.” (Stewardship vision point)

Forming parishioners and your Family to live and grow as grateful disciples who are good stewards requires intentional, consistent leadership. It is crucial that stewardship is carried out in the spirit of servant leadership as an expression of discipleship. Taking time to form your Stewardship Core Team with a deep foundation of the spirituality of stewardship is sure to bear great fruit in the life of your Family of Parishes in the future. The Grateful Disciples formation programs in the materials tab provide this formation.  

In the fall of 2023, the Center for Parish Vitality will be hosting parish cohorts and stewardship teams in Grateful Disciples training. Details will be shared later in 2023.
