As a Network for Growing Stewards, the Ecumenical Stewardship Center encourages the development of generous giving and faithful stewardship as transformational spiritual practices for Christian faith communities and their leaders. The Ecumenical Stewardship Center' envisions generous giving and faithful stewardship as:
• a recognition that God is the author of all life;
• a response to the gift of God’s grace;
• a channel through which God’s generosity can flow and God’s love can be shared;
• a spiritual discipline at the center of Christian discipleship;
• a responsibility of every follower of Jesus Christ.
The Ecumenical Stewardship Center lives out its mission and vision with a view of ecumenism as God’s gift, and with actions that are generous, collaborative, innovative, and prophetic.
The Ecumenical Stewardship Center welcomes organizations who share this vision and affirm this mission as Associate Partners. Ecumenical Stewardship Center Associate Partners have the opportunity to participate in a vital, far-reaching network that witnesses to the unity of the body of Christ and the value of faithful stewardship ministries.
Ecumenical Stewardship Center Associate Partners are asked to make an annual $500 contribution. The Ecumenical Stewardship Center gives visibility to Associate Partners through inclusion on the ESC website and offering complimentary table displays at ESC events. Associate Partners receive five complimentary copies of ESC's Giving: Growing Faithful Stewards in Your Congregation annual magazine and a discount on magazine advertising.
