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.



Fund for Leaders Matching Gift Challenge

Bishop Steven and Ruth Ullestad

Bishop Steven and Ruth Ullestad will match dollar for dollar any gift given to the H. George Anderson Fund for Leaders by Dec. 31, 2019, up to $10,000.


The Ullestads are fully aware of the churchwide shortage of pastors and deacons, and the impact that seminary scholarships will have on the future of the church. Gifts to the H. George Anderson Fund for Leaders help ensure that our children’s and grandchildren’s congregations will have pastors and deacons.


Your gift to the Fund for Leaders now is a fitting way to celebrate and show appreciation for the 27 years of Bishop Ullestad’s ministry as Bishop of the Northeastern Iowa Synod. Please join Bishop Steven and Ruth Ullestad in supporting the Fund for Leaders!
