We are the world’s first Orthodox Christian web-based coaching and consulting platform for parish and organizational development. We offer the best practices of the professional nonprofit development community adapted for use according to Orthodox ecclesiology and contextualized for application in an Orthodox parish or organization.
Orthodox clergy and the executive directors of Orthodox organizations know exceedingly well how to work “in” their parishes or organizations but receive little training or assistance in how to work “on” their parishes or organizations. How to lead, manage, develop, fundraise, strategically plan, empower volunteers, develop a parish council or a board, conduct a capital campaign, establish an endowment, build a leadership team, or resolve community conflict , etc.- unfortunately, these crucial skills remain largely untaught or undeveloped, forcing the priest or executive to rely on force of personality or the school of hard-knocks approach to learning.
Stewardship Advocates offers three services: 1) a comprehensive and easily accessible Library of materials available by subscription, though some materials are free; 2) the free and occasional Orthodox Builders e-newsletter; and 3) onsite project consulting.
