Welcome to another edition of the Stewardship Journal.

Hello from NOLA! That’s New Orleans, Louisiana, the site of the annual Southern Baptist Convention. This will be a significant Convention for me as it will be my first in many years NOT serving as Recording Secretary of the SBC. I always enjoy Conventions as it is a great time to catch up with old friends and hear about all the amazing things Southern Baptists are doing worldwide. Sadly, in the lead-up to our Conventions, good news is often forgotten. Two years ago, we asked long-time MBC pastor, Richie Rhea, to write an article about the importance of cooperation. I encourage you to read Richie’s thoughts again in our lead post entitled How Partnerships Happen.

If you weren’t the pastor, would you read your emails and letters? That is the lead question Mark Brooks, The Stewardship Coach, asks in his Stewardship Coach column. His column is entitled Making Your Appeals Appealing. As you head into the summer months, this is a great post to help you clarify and better communicate the message of all that your church is doing this summer. Mark’s post will help you improve your communication and, as a result, your giving.

This week’s Bonus Section continues Mark’s topic of making your appeals more appealing and readable with a post entitled 10 Key Tips for Improving Your Emails. If people don’t open your emails they won’t read them and if they don’t read them they will not know about how giving to your church can and will impact the Kingdom. These ten tips will improve your emails.

Thank you again for reading and supporting the Stewardship Journal. Our goal is to help you build a culture of generosity based upon biblical principles. If you know of someone that would like to receive the Journal, please send them this link for easy signup
