SABA is partnering with TwentyFour3Management to offer a Certificate in Stewardship Leadership to ministers interested in growing in their understanding of Stewardship and those interested in coaching and consulting with churches in Stewardship management.
The 9 month certificate course consists of a four Phases. Classes will be held at SABA Offices on Thursdays, beginning September 14th at 9 am to 11 am.
Phase 1 (8 weeks) Developing a Strategic Planning process where we review the current Stewardship Discipleship Process of the local church. Topics include; 1) current realities of stewardship, 2) vision & goals for stewardship, 3) barriers against stewardship, 4) action steps to grow family stewards and 5) measurable plans of a stewardship process.
Phase 2 (16 weeks) Developing a Stewardship Discipleship Team who enlists, trains and coaches through each of the Four Steward types, (stuck, struggle, stable and surplus). The team will be trained in how to coach an individual, couple or a small group, in moving forward from being stuck to surplus. Each team member will receive Budget & Debt Elimination coaching training.
Phase 3 (16 week) Developing a Stewardship Campaign, NOT a Capital Campaign! We begin by; 1) enlisting a Stewardship Campaign Team who will create a theme and branding for the campaign, 2) promote personal stewardship within the church and 3) ask the Holy Spirit what He would have members give through the campaign.
Phase 4 (8 Weeks) Discovering the power of a support group facilitated by the Stewardship Team. The Team will each work through one of the recommended stewardship training books with their enlisted group, which will help lead the group members in a deeper equipping of a steward.
Church leaders will pay a fee of $100.00 per month for a total of nine months for the certification.
