We are created in God’s image to give. Stewardship is a way of life in which we use God’s resources at our disposal for God’s purposes, recognizing that God’s gifts are dynamic and designed to flow out of us.

Stewardship is a commitment to becoming Christ-centered rather than self-centered. Our Moravian Covenant for Christian Living refers to stewardship as “a sacred responsibility and genuine opportunity to be faithful stewards of all God has entrusted to us: our time, our talents, and our financial resources. We view all of life as a sacred trust to be used wisely.” Stewardship is a joyful journey that brings us closer to who God is calling us to be.

MMFA provides stewardship development services to Moravian congregations free of charge to help pastors and congregations discover, develop, strengthen, and renew their stewardship ministries through:

  • Focus groups
  • Workshops & webinars
  • Stewardship messaging assistance
  • Planned giving resources
  • Online & print resources
  • Asset mapping
  • Ongoing support

Campaign Consulting & Fundraising

Successful ministries require a broad base of solid support. MMFA’s low-cost Campaign Consulting & Fundraising services help churches and agencies build cultures of generosity and gratitude in two ways:

Capital Campaigns

MMFA provides expert help, on a fee-for-service basis, to assist churches and agencies as they organize their fund-raising efforts to obtain the maximum result. We recommend a two-step approach:

  • A feasibility study or pre-campaign assessment to gauge the overall support for the project, help establish a campaign goal, and to identify leadership.
  • Campaign consulting to provide a framework and timetable for fundraising. We provide assistance in developing campaign materials (logo, brochures, commitment cards) and planning campaign events.

Long Range Planning Service

Understanding and articulating where you’re going is critical to make sure you get to the right place and achieve the goals of ministry that you desire. Determining who you are, where you want to go and how you’ll get there is the goal of our long-range planning service.
