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 Judicatory Partners who share this vision and affirm this mission. Ecumenical Stewardship Center Judicatory Partners participate in a vital, far-reaching network that witnesses to the unity of the body of Christ and the value of faithful stewardship ministries.
