Biblical stewardship, generous living, Kingdom focused giving and God-honoring fund mobilization should become a way of life in the evangelical community. The responses to the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) Stewardship Survey indicate that though stewardship, generosity and giving are seen as very important to Christian life, this is not always reflected in teaching and preaching in local churches and theological institutions.
"This has an impact on actual giving," says Dr. Sas Conradie, Coordinator of the Global Generosity Network and initiator of the survey among WEA's constituency. "A better theological and practical engagement in the areas of stewardship, generosity, giving and fund mobilization as well as wealth and poverty might be needed. Stewardship, generosity, giving and fund mobilization training could be valuable in the WEA community while the development of appropriate stewardship platforms in WEA members should also be considered."
