Across the country GSB works with congregations through Stewardship for All Seasons (SAS), a comprehensive stewardship program designed to fully create a culture of generosity. Congregations in their first year of SAS normally increase revenue by 10-15% and often much more than that. A far more personalized program with congregations who commit for a full year or more, SAS provides a deep dive into growing generosity in the church. If you are interested in this program, new cohorts are being launched.
Here is what one stewardship leader had to say about participation in 2020:
“We have raised substantial increases in our giving and in the number of pledges. But more than the money and the pledges that have been generated, it’s the impact that it’s had on the spiritual life of our congregation. Commitment to the principles of the SAS program have led to an increase in enthusiasm for our mission, excitement in giving, and a commitment to participation.”
