What is Biblical Stewardship by Ven. Dr. Lyndon Drake

Between August 30 and 13 September 2023, Christian Savings held a national governance conference “Building the Church for Today and Tomorrow – What is Fruitful Stewardship?”. Our conference was designed to help trustees, elders and officers better understand their governance duties. We took a closer look at some of the key stewardship issues our churches and charities are facing in this climate.

This is a recording from the day session we held in Christchurch.

How should we measure our stewardship? Lyndon has recently finished his doctoral studies on economic issues in Scripture. He shares a framework for setting stewardship goals and measuring outcomes from a biblical point of view, drawing on parallels from his experience in the Māori church and the concept of kaitiakitanga.
