I have been blessed to serve as Stewardship Enrichment Campaign Director at two different
Come Alive at the Kingwood Church of Christ in 1997 (Kingwood, Texas)
ReNEWal at the New Braunfels Church of Christ in 2012 (New Braunfels, Texas)
Randy Watts was our Consultant in both campaigns. At Kingwood, I was on the search team that
recommended Stewardship Enrichment to the Elders. Unbeknownst to me, at New Braunfels, the Elders
had utilized Stewardship Enrichment in a previous campaign in 2002 and had already contracted with
Stewardship Enrichment prior to asking me to serve as Campaign Director. I love the way God works
The season of prayer, sharing of the Elder’s future vision through the communications and Home
Information Sessions, Bible study, testimonies, and more prayer were of significant benefit to both
congregations. Many people including me really learned the power of prayer and the joy of working
toward a “big” goal focused on increasing our touching lives with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Kingwood’s goal was to eliminate debt and then use any other committed funding to renovate the
worship center. The Lord helped Kingwood to accomplish these goals.
New Braunfels’ goal was to complete a new Community Life Center without incurring debt. The Lord
helped New Braunfels accomplish this goal.
To me the above accomplishments were great however the direct physical participation of the majority of
the congregation in each of the campaigns and the spiritual energy that flowed and spiritual growth
from that participation was the real thing that God accomplished.
Last but not least, celebrating the victory that God gave prior to any commitments and contributions was wonderful. We lived out what King David demonstrated when he led Israel in funding and bringing in all the material required to build the temple. It was a special event that will not be forgotten.
