Stewardship ministry in the Southeastern Iowa Synod is faithfully carried out in congregations.
The Commission for Evangelical Mission seeks to provide encouragement, training and resources for stewardship leaders in congregations.
As part of The Macedonia Project, the synod has developed a team of Volunteer Gift Planning Associates. These volunteers are available to make presentations in congregations and small groups, lifting up the gift of being able to extend our faithful witness through wills, bequests, trusts and other planned giving opportunities.
They are also available to have one-on-one conversations with members who are interested in making a legacy gift to ministries that are important to them.
If you would like to meet individually with a Gift Planning Associate or schedule a presentation please contact Pr. Erika Uthe [email protected] by calling 319-338-1273.
