God has blessed us richly in Texas. We have incredible mission opportunities. The challenge is great. There are thousands of people moving each day to our neighborhoods and communities, our cities and shores. Some congregations are having great effect in the stewardship component of their ongoing discipleship process. Others are looking for a new direction in their discipleship/stewardship education. In an effort to discover and encourage discipleship growth and increased missional movement in our congregations, I am asking for your participation in this short Stewardship survey. The goal is to receive 1,000 responses from professional church workers, lay leaders, and members of Lutheran Congregations in the LCMS in Texas concerning their personal and corporate response to the Gospel. Anonymity is available if you so choose. Your honest response is highly valued.Thank you for participating in our survey. Your feedback is important and will assist in further development of Stewardship emphasis and programming. Grace and mercy, Reverend Steven Misch, Area A MMFTexas District, LCMS, Stewardship Task Force
