Research on Stewardship

 

 

Stewardship Research Project

 

Are you still thirsting? Christ gives the invitation not only to others but to you. He is the fountainhead. Francis Schaeffer

 

Faith in God's provision certainly does not exclude asking fellow believers to give, for in fact God's most regular means of providing for ministry is precisely through the generosity of his people- Francis Schaeffer

 

The word, stewardship, simply means to manage someone else's property.

 

 

 

We sought to find out if there is a connection or correlation of faith from "discipleship precepts of Christian formation" to giving in a local church. Then compare that to how stewardship is actually perceived and practiced in American local churches.

 

Why was this study done? There is little serious or in-depth research performed on this subject.
