Empowering Stewardship has been created in connection with the Lilly Endowment, Inc of Indianapolis Indiana. Since 2016, the Lilly Endowment has graciously provided a $2.3 million grant to the Assemblies of God to further their program called the National Initiative to Address Economic Challenges Facing Pastoral Leaders.
Through this generous gift, Empowering Stewardship has provided tools to help alleviate the economic and financial challenges that plague many of our AG pastors. We have connected pastors with resources to enhance their financial literacy and management skills, and created a ministerial excellence fund that helped alleviate, through direct financial assistance, the financial challenges that AG pastoral leaders face.
Empowering Stewardship is also a primary resource to help church leaders successfully navigate the complexities of church finance and administration. The goal is to connect church leaders with resources and tools necessary to ensure they faithfully steward the people and finances entrusted to them.
