4. Prepare Your Leadership for the Launch
Get your leaders on board prior to the public announcement of the 33 Days of Stewardship. Have them read the book and review the Discovery Guide. Engage everyone in prayer for this important endeavor.

5. Announce and Promote the 33 Days Program
The first public announcement of the 33 Days of Stewardship should occur a few weeks before the start of the program. Encourage every member to get involved in this venture of faith. Communicate the priority of participation and use the specially-designed bulletin inserts and posters for your promotional efforts.

6. Distribute Books and Discovery Guides
Two to three weeks prior to the program launch, begin to distribute copies of The 33 Laws of Stewardship and the 33 Days of Stewardship Discovery Guide. These are the essential resources for the program.

7. Launch the 33 Days of Stewardship
Most churches designate a Tuesday or Wednesday as Day 1 of the 33 Days program. On the weekend prior to Day 1, the sermon and the worship service are a preparation for the launch. This motivates members as they begin the journey.

8. Stay on Course and Finish the Journey
Each day of the 33 Days, every person reads a brief chapter in the book and does a brief exercise in the Discovery Guide. This is the "3 R's" strategy-a daily Reading, Reflection and Response. This has proven to be very effective in transforming the way Christians think about stewardship. Each weekend, there are sermons and lessons that reinforce the daily discoveries.

9. Celebrate the Commitment
Day 33-the culmination of the journey-is a celebration of commitment by the entire church. Not just financial commitment, but commitment to prayer and service as well.

10. Complete the Commitment
After the commitment comes the completion. The 33 Days program includes follow-up strategies, motivational letters and other materials to ensure that the commitment truly leads to completion.

For the most effective, most meaningful stewardship emphasis, there is simply no better program than the 33 Days of Stewardship. Act now to ensure that your church experiences this great journey.
