The Philosophy: • The philosophy explains why we do what we do. • Therefore, the Philosophy of Stewardship explains why the Stewardship Ministries came into existence. • The Stewardship Ministries Department was organized by the General Conference (1966) with the purpose of helping churches to fulfill the mission of the church through a spiritual revival.

  4. The History: • At the 1966 General Conference Session, a vote was taken to change the Development Service of the church into the Department of Development. • The Development Service began in North America in 1954 at the conference level only, and was used to help individual churches finance building projects (churches and academies).

  5. More about History: • The new department would have as its primary function the promotion of a spiritual revival program at the local church level promoting a spirit of sacrifice, in order to boost world evangelization and the development of the church in general. • Three basic programs were organized: • 1. Combined Budget, 2. Development Plan and • 3. Systematic Benevolence.
