STEWARDSHIP MINISTRY

MISSION STATEMENT:

 

“The stewardship ministry is committed to encouraging and developing consistent and generous giving in every area of a disciples’ life, so that we each can be blessed and fully resourced in our own personal lives and in our church ministry."

 

We purpose to be faithful stewards of the tithes and contributions faithfully given to the Lord at Grace to the Nations, managing these gifts with wisdom, integrity and excellence as a sacred trust.

Malachi 3:10

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse that there may be food in my house.  Test me in this….and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”

 

ONE OF THE BIGGEST WALLS THAT STOP EACH ONE OF US IS FINANCES!

And knowing this…..even 2000 years ago, Jesus spoke to this issue repeatedly.  In fact, Jesus was never afraid to talk about money or wealth.  He talked more about money than faith and prayer combined!

 

And He made our finances an issue attached to our discipleship.There is a fundamental connection between a person’s spiritual life and his attitude toward money and possessions.
