Nominations are open for the 2013 “Church Executive” Good Steward Awards!

GS_logo_2013The overriding mission of Church Executive is simple: We aim to help church leaders become better stewards. With that mission in mind, the magazine launched its first-annual Good Steward Awards last year.

The second-annual Good Steward Awards — coming in our December 2013 issue! — will continue the tradition of celebrating churches that demonstrate best practices and innovation.

We’ve “mixed it up a little” in terms of categories and subcategories this year:

FACILITIES — Construction (green, adaptive re-use, multi-site, multipurpose, expansion, accessibility), disaster recovery, children’s spaces, sports and recreation, food service
FINANCE — Responsible investing, financial transparency, cost savings, financial education/ministry
FUNDRAISING — Capital campaigns, small-project fund raising, alternative revenue
LEADERSHIP — Overcoming challenges, staff management (training, workplace culture, managing a multi-site staff), innovative outreach
SAFETY & SECURITY — Child protection, staff management (exceptional screening processes), risk management
TECHNOLOGY — Multi-site management, on-line and mobile giving solutions, maximizing social media (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn), accommodating worshippers with special needs, awe-inspiring theatrical productions/worship arts

Do you know of a church that deserves recognition in one of these areas? Maybe it’s your own church! Regardless, the CE staff wants to know. And, the nomination process only takes a few minutes with our new online nomination form.

Nominate as many churches as you’d like; we’re eager to hear from you. The deadline for submission is September 16, 2013 — but why wait? It’s never too early to recognize a church’s good work.
