Welcome to our new website. It is my hope that you will find resources here that will enable you to be a faithful steward of God’s gracious gifts. Stewardship and tithing have been a passion during my forty plus years of ministry. My ministry journey has taken me from being a mission developer of a new congregation and leading the members to understand how stewardship is a part of discipleship to being a bishop and helping numerous congregations find joy in faithful stewardship practices.
Joy in Christ’s service,
Rev. Paul R. Landahl, Director
It is the purpose of The Tithing and Stewardship Foundation to promote the practice of proportionate giving which leads to and beyond the tithe, thereby encouraging spiritual growth in the sharing of time, talent and treasure, and the enjoyment of the benefits thereof. Please browse our materials, and use our resources to update your stewardship library and practices. Let us know if we can provide you with any additional information!
Bringing the whole tithe...
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in my house, and thus put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts; see if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an overflowing blessing. Malachi 3:10, NRSV
The Tithing and Stewardship Foundation is housed at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago.
