Our History

INJOY Stewardship was founded in 1992 by leadership guru Dr. John C. Maxwell. We were founded out of the desire to not simply help churches raise money, but rather, to help churches raise more fully surrendered followers of Jesus.

Since 1992, we have been blessed to serve over 4,500 churches, however, our desire remains the same. We help churches fund the vision God has given them through customized capital campaigns.

Core Values

We Expect Excellence

Everything should be done with excellence; it honors God and inspires people. We do all we can to provide excellent service to our partners.

We Value Relationships

Every healthy relationship is built on trust. We strive to build healthy relationships with our partners through integrity and honesty.

We provide "lagniappe" - a little something extra - causing church leaders to say, "We could not have done this without you!"

We Exceed Expectations

We Pursue Innovation

Yesterday's solutions will not solve today's problems.

God is created the Universe with order. Therefore, we find it integral to use accurate data to guide our decisions.

We Value Data

We believe we can accomplish more for the Kingdom of God together than we can apart.

We Value Teamwork
