Church Capital Stewardship Campaigns
The Steward Growth Systems Capital Stewardship Campaign is designed for churches in which the Scriptural principles of financial stewardship intersect and complement
fundraising methodologies. The campaign
is a proven plan that increases the giving potential for churches. The campaign progressively grows giving decisions by
broadening and enriching the church through information, togetherness,
ownership, and movement forward. The
campaign is staffed by the people of the church who form teams to carry the
campaign forward. SGS is successful in creating high involvement and participation in the capital campaign. The campaign energizes churches with the best tools for ministry such as leadership manuals, printed items, training materials, preaching and teaching
resources. SGS develops the time line, team leaders, case statement, multimedia, charts, organization, enlistment, training meetings and manages
the implementation of the campaign plan for on time delivery. The campaign experience is for the church to
renew its vision and community, develop good will for raising the funds, and
results in extra ordinary generous giving.
The schedule is based on every other week meetings over a 4-6 month time
period followed by a three year giving period. The SGS capital campaign develops over and above giving and does not take away from the ministry budget of the church. Giving decisions are based upon life style changes and questions: 1. How much can we afford to give? 2. Is there anything we can sacrifice by changing our life style or plans? 3. Is the Lord leading us to a higher level of faith giving? Large gifts often come through creative giving such as stocks and bonds which have tax advantages. SGS leads to create convenient channels for giving such as brokerage accounts, online giving, automatic withdrawals from bank accounts, etc. Your church
will find the SGS Capital Campaign experience and results to be similar to King David's fundraising as
recorded in I Chronicles 29: 9 “Then the people rejoiced because they offered
so willingly, for they make their offering to the Lord with a whole heart, and
King David also rejoiced greatly”.
Steward Growth Systems enables your people to do the capital campaign. Your people are the faces, voices, leaders, decision makers for the campaign. The campaign experience will fit the culture of your church well.
