Development

Mission of the Office of Development

The Office of Development ensures that the vital ministries of the Diocese of Metuchen receive the financial support necessary to continue to grow and thrive. Seeking financial gifts is very important because it inspires God's people to holiness through the practice of self-giving.

The basis for giving is founded on the principle of sound stewardship, the belief that recognizes and honors God's ultimate ownership and unlimited generosity in all things. As mature disciples, we've made a conscious decision to be followers of Jesus Christ. Stewardship is an expression of our discipleship.

A Christian steward receives God's gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others, and returns them in gratitude with increase to the Lord.
