Several years ago, Stewardship Ministries was honored to receive a generous legacy gift. Stewardship chose to invest this gift into Christian education and religion students by awarding scholarships for excellent sermons about stewardship. We recognize that understanding the blessing and communicating the discipline of generosity is an important skill for ministers to attain. We challenge ministry students to write and submit a stewardship sermon in the hopes that they will learn to teach the blessing of generosity to their congregations.

This year’s scholarship recipients, whose sermons were selected through a blind process by a panel of judges, are:

Sam Bartolome, Northwest Nazarene University (click to download)
Rachael Reichley, Nazarene Theological Seminary (click to download)

Congratulations to our scholarship recipients. It is encouraging to see such quality work focused on stewardship from our university and seminary students.

Previous winners’ sermons are included below. Feel free to download the sermons for use in your local church.
