“The Earth is the Lord’s and all it contains, the world, and all those who dwell in it.”
Through this one verse, the Lord makes it clear that He owns everything that exists, including each and every one of us. We simply have the honored task of managing a small, but strategic, portion of His vast material holdings.
When was the last time you talked to the Owner about what you were doing with His stuff? As a good and faithful steward, we want to use all that He has entrusted to us wisely and carefully for His purpose and His glory.
Biblical Stewardship – or Whole-Life Stewardship – is a ministry provided by Taylor University to help you navigate life as the Lord’s steward with spiritual and practical tools, counsel and resources. Find out how this concept could radically change the entire trajectory of your life.
All we are, and all we possess, does not belong to us. It belongs to the Lord.
This ministry was created to help you effectively manage all of God’s resources—time, talents, money, relationships, career, possessions, the earth, and more.
Stewardship is not about what we put in the offering when we go to church; it is about what we are doing with what is left in our savings after we have done our giving.
Where are you in your biblical stewardship planning?
Biblical Stewardship is our gift to you — the extended Taylor family, current students, and ministry partners — in gratitude for your generosity and commitment to building the Lord's kingdom at Taylor and throughout your community.
Every principle, practice, and application of this ministry is firmly grounded in the Word of God.

At the heart of wise financial stewardship, we’re called to ask three questions:
“How much is enough for us?”
This is an emotional, spiritual, and financial question. We need to determine how much of the Lord’s gifts to consume on our lifestyle.
“How much is enough for our heirs?”
If we become parents, this question becomes extremely important and complex. There are a host of inheritance conundrums that parents face in planning.
“What are we going to do with what’s left over?”
After answering the first two questions, you’ll know how much you have left over to use while you’re still on this Earth and once you go to be with the Lord.
For a student from Mumbai, India in the late 1980s, the two pillars of light of Rice Bell Tower illuminating the night sky helped Andi Eicher (’92) see the possibility of living life as a Christian with his “eyes wide open.”
