Oakhurst’s understanding and practice of stewardship has joined a long list of world views that we have turned upside down. Stewardship for us is wisely using the resources of time, energy, talent, and money to give meaning and life to our passionate belief that we are not here by chance. It is not by chance that our definition of stewardship does not include meeting a church budget.
As a church community, we approach stewardship by identifying throughout the year what ministries and activities engage the passion of the congregation and build community among ourselves, within the local community and within the world community. From this starting point, we are intentional in communicating what is being accomplished, how our activities are expressing God’s grace, and the availability of resources to execute what we set out to accomplish. If what we do has value and there is passion behind that value, the resources will be available.
