Manitoba/Northwestern Ontario

MNO Consultant -- Rev. Larry Ulrich

Responsibilities: Stewardship, Canadian Mission and Youth Ministry

Stewardship Mandate: To assist congregational leadership, particularly stewardship committees, to promote a biblical sense of the stewardship of all God’s gifts in creation, as a direct response to God’s grace and love for us.

Addressing the Mandate: By challenging and assisting congregational leadership to think “stewardship” the whole year long, promoting stewardship materials and programs that congregations can use each year, working with congregations to address the ”time and talent” part of stewardship each spring, and the “money” part of stewardship each fall.

Favourite Stewardship Phrase: Stewardship is everything we do after we say “I believe.”

Watch for your new Stewardship materials that will be made available to your congregations by May 2007 called “Growing Joyful Stewards in Your Congregation”.
