Since the fall of 2015, the Stewardship Ministry of  Presbytery of the James has continued under the leadership of Deborah Rexrode, associate for Stewardship. This ministry is a collaboration between the associate for Stewardship and  Stewardship leaders in the churches of our presbytery.

Every church is unique, and the overall leadership of this ministry is valued most when it comes through individual attention and tailored approaches that fit the culture of each congregation. This is accomplished through preaching, teaching, training, planning, and meeting with sessions and Stewardship/Generosity teams.

Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.
