Dr. Terry Lanford with Entrusted to Teach served as a Revitalization Strategist.  He developed the following resources that are available for our churches to use:

Developing a Stewardship Strategy

This resource is designed to help Pastors, staff members, and church leaders develop an annual stewardship emphasis that will be used by the Lord to lead believers to respond to His agenda for financial stewardship. Training topics include prayer, discovering your theme, creating a stewardship task force, developing a calendar of milestones, and creating a culture of stewardship. Methods for communicating and casting vision through sermons, lessons, video spots, and testimonies will also be addressed. Tips and practical ideas for strategic budget planning that will help your church channel resources to support the mission and ministries of your church will also be shared.

First Impressions

What’s the first impression guests have about your church?  Have you considered how their experience looks through their eyes?  First impressions matter because people matter.  We hope people will return so that they will hear truth from the Word of God and if they are  not already, that they become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Protecting Your Ministry

Has your church proactively sought to establish policies and procedures to address the challenges of today’s culture?  Do you have a plan to protect your members from harm?  Do your current bylaws and policies help protect your ministry from a lawsuit?
