Horizons Stewardship recently released an article about recruiting good stewardship/generosity leaders.  The first qualification is that the chosen leaders actually practice good stewardship and generosity. Yes, this will mean that someone needs to check with the financial secretary to see if the leaders are giving to the church and if each individual’s level of giving is reflection of her/his potential.  Remember, it is not about the size of the contribution, but the sacrifice the contribution represents.  A $100 monthly gift from a successful business person does not reflect good stewardship/generosity.

 

An additional guide states that stewardship/generosity leaders understand discipleship.  Leaders need to see that generosity is a natural part of growing as a disciple.  Failure to practice stewardship/generosity results in a failure to grow in discipleship. The one guides the other.
