Barnabas Foundation

The RCA is a member of the Barnabas Foundation. This membership gives RCA churches and organizations access to quality stewardship education resources, development programs and, from time to time, church conferences and events.

The Barnabas Foundation approaches its work with churches from a Christian perspective based on two key principles:

  • Stewardship is a way of life.
  • Living generously is an expression of God's love.

Stewardship of our resources recognizes and reflects God's ownership of all things. Since stewardship development and education is a core value of the Barnabas Foundation, they serve as a catalyst for churches to develop good stewards based on God's ownership of everything, our role as his managers, and our desire to use all the gifts he has given us to honor him.
