Stewardship is everything we do after we say I believe.

This quote of Clarence Stoughton sets forth the primary basis of our stewardship work here in the Northeastern Iowa Synod. The reality is that once one becomes a disciple of Jesus Christ, stewardship is not an option.

Our goal is to support and strengthen congregations and leaders in their life of discipleship, which includes stewardship.



Help grow future leaders in the church

H. George Anderson Fund for Leaders Endowment

WTS_Grads_2016 cr2
The Northeastern Iowa Synod is committed to growing the number of candidates for parish ministry to fill an anticipated increase in open calls due to retiring pastors.

The H. George Anderson Fund for Leaders helps support that commitment by providing scholarships for seminarians from the Northeastern Iowa Synod. These scholarships remove potential debt for seminary study, which makes it easier for young adults and those with families to pursue a call to ministry. With less debt, new pastors can better afford to serve in small, rural congregations, such as those in the Northeastern Iowa Synod.

Learn how you and your congregation can support future leaders of the church through this fund.
