Stewardship Ministry

Managing the gifts God gives us

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Stewardship Ministry helps congregations grow in their understanding and implementation of a life of stewardship.

Christian stewardship is the free and joyous activity of God’s family — the church — in managing life’s resources for His purposes.

Resources & Services

Bulletin, Newsletter Information

Stewardship bulletin sentences and newsletter articles are available for congregations to feature in church publications. Bulletin sentences are based on the one-year and three-year lectionary.


Stewardship from A to Z

The A to Z collection of resources includes important items for pastor and stewardship committees. The documents are arranged into four sections to help leaders find content applicable to their unique settings.


Stewardship Under the Cross

Stewardship Under the Cross: Stewardship for the Confessional Lutheran Parish was written by the Rev. Heath Curtis. He shares the “experience and advice of one pastor struggling to remain faithful to God’s Word while leading his parish through a rough financial patch.”

The Chief Steward

The Chief Steward: A Manual on Pastoral Leadership was written by the Rev. J.E. Herrmann in 1950.

The Rev. Nathan Meador, assistant coordinator of the LCMS Stewardship Ministry, says the resource has timeless advice despite being written more than 60 years ago.


Bible Stewardship Principles

The LCMS recommends using these Bible Stewardship Principles in guiding education and appeal efforts in Synod congregations, entities, agencies and auxiliaries. The principles feature a leader’s guide and are available in four different languages plus three age-appropriate versions.
