Mission, Ministry, and Money

Passage:Luke 16:1-13

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Category: Mission & Vision

Every thriving church needs to have a solid understanding of a right relationship between its ministries and its funding. There needs to be a clear sense of the connection between the church's mission, the ministries it does to fulfill that mission, and the way in which its members give to enable those ministries and pursue that mission. For today's sermon, although it's not quite time yet for our Stewardship Season, we are getting close! The church leadership has been busy this summer researching, exploring, and discerning some improvements to our system of stewardship and budgeting, and today's sermon is part exposition on Jesus' parable of the shrewd manager from Luke 16:1-13, and part update on our plans for stewardship.
