Welcome to Stewardship Matters at the Diocese of Newark!
Our goal here is to share relevant news, training, and tools to help you strengthen your congregation's mission and ministry resources and – at the same time – to help you experience the joy and power that is possible when we embrace all dimensions of Stewardship.
In addition to the resources you’ll find here, the Diocesan Stewardship Teaching Team conducts regular workshops for congregations in the Diocese. We are also happy to do “house calls,” specific congregation-focused teaching sessions for vestries and other groups. The Stewardship Teaching Team at the Diocese is led by Cynthia McChesney, Advisor to the Bishop for Stewardship and Leadership Giving, and includes diocesan leaders and volunteers-extraordinaire David Farrand, Paul Shackford, and Pat Yankus.
To schedule a Stewardship house call, or learn more about an upcoming diocesan-wide workshop, please contact Cynthia McChesney.
In Stewardship, the practical works hand in hand with the spiritual. With that in mind we’ll be using these pages to include lots of practical tips and advice, much of which comes from our own churches, some from other denominations, and still other pulled from the expertise of non-church fundraisers. We’re always adding more, so check back frequently. And don’t forget to check out our Stewardship Matters Facebook page too!
