We believe that God is the owner of all things and that what we do with our estates is an act of stewardship. Every Alabama Baptist church is full of believers who have never even considered this. Just imagine the Kingdom impact your church could make by serving your members in this way.
This new ministry in your church starts with a planning meeting scheduled with our leadership team.
During the planning process we will assist the local church to determine how best to launch this important ministry to their congregation. We emphasize to the church this is a biblically based ministry – not a fundraising program. The focus of this ministry is on helping faithful givers connect heaven-inspired generosity with easy action. Studies have shown that on average it takes about three years for a church to implement and cultivate a ministry for it to then become a part of the educational fabric of the church.
For The Foundation, this is a commitment to partner with the local church. We recognize that believers will be ready to plan their estates with an eye toward honoring their faith and family at different times in their lives. The Foundation has several options for this portion of the process including the following:
- A web-based product providing training materials for church leadership and materials for leading internal sessions to church membership. The site also instructs church members on estate stewardship and leads them toward making a decision to plan their estate through the eyes of a steward.
- Several levels of ongoing and onsite planning meetings for private one-on-one sessions with church membership. No products are sold during any part of this ministry. This ministry initiative is strictly a biblically based educational event leading the member toward a full understanding on planning the estate as an act of stewardship.
Each local church is unique and this ministry is customizable to fit the need of the local church.
