Learning Stewardship

K.I.D.S. Coordinator Stan Tordsen and his wife, Kathy, staff the Stamp Table each Sunday morning at St. John in Stewartville, MN. LCEF’s K.I.D.S. Stamps gives children an opportunity to invest in their own faith community; Learn more...

Tordsen, a retired school teacher and current coach, also led an adult Bible Study at St. John. He incorporated portions of K.I.D.S. Count into the stewardship lesson. Contact us if you have an interest in learning more. The study fell on Nov. 11, Veteran’s Day, so Tordsen also had a special documentary and recognition for member veterans at St. John Lutheran Church in Stewartville, MN.

We appreciate Stan, and his wife Kathy, for all they do to help encourage and lift up others for Christ.


Romans 12:6-8 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.
