OKUMF: Cultivate Giving


Your calling to pastor is a personal one. Overall, you have a passion to lead others in walking closer with Christ in every ­aspect of life. Stewardship is one part of that walk, and WE have a passion to develop stewardship with you.
We work with you to increase awareness and understanding of Legacy Giving and how to communicate with your congregation, committees, and councils. You aren’t alone in shepherding your community.
Endowment Programs
One of the most enduring and effective ways we can help your church is through the development of an endowment program.
Imagine having a consistent flow of support for a particular ministry. You no longer worry about being able to keep up, and you are able to do even more with the occasional one-time gift to that ministry.
There are many more ways an Endowment Program can be used to bless your ministries. Let us help you establish one today.
We can help
It can be overwhelming to come up with more and more ways to provide information to encourage stewardship. We have experience and resources on tap to promote this message for you and alongside you.
Whether it is in a seminar, Sunday School class, or your worship service, our staff can bear some of this burden and help your congregation take steps to invest more into ministry.
Face to Face
We value personal connection rather than a one-size-fits-all ­approach. Our passion is to help you develop something that works for your church. We are always available to support your ministries, so reach out to us!
Call our office at 800-259-6863 so we can connect with you. We are an organization that is helping you to invest in doing lasting good in this world.
Do Lasting Good
We desire to help you do the good you want without complicating the process of wills and estate planning. Our staff can guide you on the steps to take and work with your professional advisors to create a plan for lasting good. ­— Call or email David Battles at 800-259-6863 or dbattles@okumf.org
