Stewardship Services

Sound, biblical stewardship of one's material assets is an important responsibility of the Christian life.  It is a responsibility which extends even beyond the use of those assets to meet needs while we are alive to ensuring the appropriate and godly use of them after death.  Included is the need to dispose of and use your assets in the most tax-efficient manner possible.

To encourage such biblical stewardship, and as a service to our supporters, IFCA International has partnered with Believers Stewardship Services, Inc.  BSS offers: (a) educational seminars and materials to local churches and other ministries; (b) educational literature to explain various financial topics; (c) estate planning; and (d) personal conferences to work with believers (and their professional advisors, when appropriate) in developing plans to meet both their material needs and their spiritual goals.
