STEWARDSHIP = OPERATIONS + CAPITAL
This shows a budget that directly supports the ministries, operations, and planned capital expenditures. The 2022 fiscal year stewardship contributions are intended to support operational expenditures, accomplish capital projects and establish a reserve fund for future growth and ministry needs.
