It is up to us to choose how we steward what God has given us and to live a life beyond our imagination in discovering God’s will for our lives.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 7, 2007
Imagine having an abundance of time to live a life of peace instead of frenzy, an abundance of talent fulfilled instead of wasted and an abundance of treasure dedicated to a life of surrender instead of worry. RSI , the leading Dallas-based stewardship firm, has created a new innovative, 30-day, church-wide stewardship study, titled REVEALED: The Life You’ve Only Imagined, which makes it possible to stop imagining and begin living.
"For years, RSI has helped churches financially through developing capital campaigns,” said Doug Turner, president of RSI. “But we have a desire to go beyond the issue of money to help congregations create a ‘culture of stewardship’ so members see stewardship as more than a financial buzzword, but rather a way of life.”
REVEALED is one of the most unique 30-day, church-wide stewardship studies of time, talent and treasure, which emphasizes accountability through small groups to unite the entire congregation. Participants of all ages – children, youth and adults – will reinforce the weekly Bible study with daily reflections and Scripture memorization through age-specific curriculum.
“While it may not always feel like there are enough hours in the day, ability to get the job done or money in the bank, God has given each of us an abundance of time, talent and treasure,” Turner said. “It is up to us to choose how we steward what God has given us and to live a life beyond our imagination in discovering God’s will for our lives.”
In addition to weekly Bible study, adults will also benefit from DVD teachings and inspiration from Turner, a stewardship expert, leader and former church pastor who has worked first-hand with congregations of all sizes, including Willow Creek Community Church near Chicago, Ill., and Calvary Chapel in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Joining him are some of the nation’s most innovative and effective pastors including Dr. Tim Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York; Dr. David Ireland of Christ Church in New Jersey; and Rev. Troy Gramling of Flamingo Road Church in Florida.
Intertwined within these teachings are heart and humor life-lesson stories from Rev. Mike Breaux, teaching pastor at Willow Creek, as well as personal, real-life testimonies of faithful stewards.
“A life void of stress and worry is available, but it requires surrender,” Turner said. “A life of peace and fulfillment only comes from surrendering your life to the Lord so that you no longer think about your time, your talent and your treasure, but rather God’s time, God’s talent and God’s treasure. This 30-day study has the power to transform your life but only if you are willing to fully dive in.”
REVEALED is produced with the expertise of RSI and Lifetogether.
