Stewardship Entrees

Stewardship Entrees

Everyone knows that it takes money to start and sustain a vibrant, life-changing ministry, and yet many congregational leaders resist talking about money. A stewardship ministry built on biblical principles and planned in a commonsense, even-handed manner can break down the barriers and cultivate a culture of generosity. These resources can help!

Stewardship Consultants

The Lower Susquehanna Synod is ready, willing and able to help our congregations put together and implement a stewardship strategy. We’ll meet with your pastor, your stewardship team or your congregation council for free guidance and coaching. Contact the Rev. Robert Blezard, 717-461-8348, or rblezard@lss-elca.org.

The ELCA Foundation has resources at its website, as well as consultants who can meet with your congregational leaders to develop ideas and plans for long-term financial stability. Contact Pastor Liz Polanzke, the ELCA Foundation’s Central Pennsylvania Gift Planner, 717-654-2334, or Elizabeth.Polanzke@elca.org.
