Who Should Nominate (and Be Nominated)?

If your church is doing exceptional things in the areas of FACILITIES, FINANCE, FUNDRAISING, LEADERSHIP, SAFETY & SECURITY OR TECHNOLOGY, resist the urge to be humble: submit a nomination form today. Your church’s story might spur another church to follow that good-stewardship lead.

Or, maybe you’re a supplier to church market who has an exceptional church client or case study to share. We want to hear from you, too; nominate that church client for a Good Steward Award.

NOMINATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, September 30, 2015
