Financial Planning with a Christian Perspective

We've changed our name! Formerly "Stewardship in Action," we are now called "Sower: Seeds of Faith & Finance."  As some of you might know, stewardship-sharing of one's time and talents — not just money — has become our crusade or ministry. Our program began at the Woodbury (NY) UMC. We assisted people with their personal financial plans. Our church members and friends offered to pay for the work. We did not accept the money, so we asked that they give a special offering to our church in recognition of our work. This started us thinking that perhaps other churches would also benefit from our time and talents.

We have now held about 40-45 seminars throughout the conference and educated well over 800 people about how to be good stewards of their resources. As a result of these seminars, churches within the Conference have benefited with more than $3.9 million in bequests! In addition, free-will offerings made to the participants' home churches have totaled more than $62,000. For more information about what we do, click here>>
