Stewardship Philosophy

Tim Snow
Executive Pastor
It changes us when we give. When we give our lives and our resources we are somehow changed as well. Joy, generosity, hope, anticipation seem to grow. We are awake to what God is doing and we are involved. The impact is double. This is God’s design. We are the ones he wants to use to bring his love and care.

I invite you to invest your time, your talents and your financial resources in this amazing community of University Presbyterian Church. We are a community on the move seeking to grow in Christ, love the students of the UW, engaging our city and the world beyond in places where God is at work.


At University Presbyterian Church, stewardship is not our code word for giving money, it is the way we think about our life together. Our grateful response to God for all he’s given us, not just in financial resources, but in our time, talents, relationships, opportunities, and even challenges.

We seek to serve God with our whole selves, and encourage others to do so as well.

We believe in serving God with who we are, what we have, and what we do. Yes, this includes financial giving, but it encompasses much more than that. God has given each of us unique gifts, abilities, and resources--he's entrusted them to us, and has given us the freedom to use them for his glory.
