The Passionate Steward: Recovering Christian Stewardship from Secular Fundraising is a set book targeted at Christian parishes, in peculiar priesthood and laypersons trusty for community stewardship, but is not needfully a "how-to" on the fundamental principle of fundraising. Rather, Steward reads more than on the lines of a "why-not" or "how-about" journal in that complications of community situation are not addressed with decided solutions in mind, but are revealed to permit the scholar to travel to the victorian conclusions active what is first-class for his/her place of worship.Post ads:

O'Hurley-Pitts defines the various kinds of stewardship, pointing out foremost that freehanded is "not transactional," but "vocational." The dilemma near implementing secular fundraising techniques to parishes, he argues, is that the act of bountiful is in that way in jeopardy of existence cheapened. Giving to one's church, be it circumstance or money, should not have to involve enticing parishioners near gifts and incentives, the playwright argues. People should privation to administer in need having to be bombarded by a "what's in it for me" mentality, peculiarly when the incentives are just about sacred.
O'Hurley-Pitts outlines in Steward a history and the uncomplicated bedrock of post from a Christian position and recommended methods for campaigns (direct mail, visiting speakers), and weighs the pros and cons of all. For the struggling small-town parish or the habitual municipality church, The Passionate Steward lays out the buggy and bolts of situation in a laconic and punctual air.Post ads:
