Stewardship is everything we do after we say I believe.

This quote from 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.

The Northeastern Iowa Synod is committed to growing the number of candidates for parish ministry to fill an increase in open calls due to retiring pastors. The H. George Anderson Fund for Leaders Endowment helps support that commitment by providing scholarships for seminarians from the Northeastern Iowa Synod.


You and your congregation can support future leaders of the church through this fund.
