Featuring Bruce Barkhauer
With the understanding that stewardship encompasses more than money, “Stewardship in Scripture” students will gain a rich and diverse understanding of biblical stewardship principles. Topics include theology of abundance, the importance of generosity, stewardship as transformation, stewardship of the Gospel, and more.
The primary objective of this course is for students to engage the biblical witness and its broad perspective of the concept of stewardship. Participants in the class will develop an understanding that stewardship is about more than money. The successful student will be able to articulate stewardship as a spiritual discipline and point to passages the elucidate concepts of creation care, Sabbath observation, self-care, gospel care, and the management of resources.
It is suggested that class participants purchase and read Giving to God: The Bible’s Good News About Living a Generous Life by Mark Allen Powell.
