Stewardship For All Seasons 2019 Flyer

The Southern Ohio Synod is delighted to make available a new resource for congregations that increased giving by as much as 75% in other congregations in the ELCA!

GSB FundRaising’s Stewardship for All Seasons has a proven track record in helping congregations grow giving:

  • In the Rocky Mountain Synod, 13 participating congregations saw a combined total increase of $1.1 million in their first year in Stewardship for All Seasons (avg. increase of $84,615).
  • Stephen Lutheran in Longwood, Florida increased giving by $2080 per week and added 42 automatic givers.
  • Unity, Milwaukee, an inner-city congregation, increased their annual fund revenue from $100,000 by $33,000 in their first year of Stewardship for All Seasons. Congregational leaders report a significant change in culture around stewardship.
  • During an interim, a congregation in southeast Michigan increased giving by $34,000 which allowed them to increase their mission support from $0 to $18,000.
  • Trinity, Richmond grew congregational giving by 12.5% in the first year of Stewardship for All Seasons, and the congregation completed a statement of intent for mission support for the first time.

These services are made available to your congregation at a very affordable rate through a special partnership between the Southern Ohio Synod and Gronlund Sayther Brunkow.


Please contact the Synod’s Director for Evangelical Mission, Pastor Katie Kerrigan ( if your congregation would like to participate or if you would like further information.
