Envisioning, Planning, Resourcing God’s Call – Your Mission

Transforming Christian Ministries

Stewardship… Discipleship… Vision. Integrating these is a path to transformation. Transforming Christian Ministries employs proven practices, inspired teaching and focused leadership for the integration of stewardship and discipleship to assist partner clients to achieve more than fundraising. Our team will lead your ministry to a new level of transformational stewardship. A custom created Transforming Christian Ministries plan builds from this foundation for a fresh, personalized approach to funding ministry in the church and other faith-based organizations. The result is a culture of generosity among ministry supporters.

Michael Vilardo has been instrumental in the growth of the Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church endowment.  In the few years we have contracted with Michael to educate and nurture church members with regard to leaving a legacy through the endowment program,  the endowment has grown by over $13 million.

Senior Pastor, Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church

We called on Michael for guidance and support and could not have been more pleased. He listened to us and sought to understand our unique vision and goals before suggesting a strategy. The end result was pledges of two and a half times our annual budget. We had a great experience and continue to have an ongoing conversation with Michael.
