RSI was founded in 1972 as America’s first company devoted to the stewardship and fundraising needs of churches. Our founders realized that for Christians, funding decisions are always spiritual before they are financial.
RSI has grown to become the most sought-after provider of stewardship services. Our staff – from many denominations and traditions – have worked tirelessly to build the nation’s leading resource for practical, faithful, and effective Christian stewardship counsel.
In 2009, RSI was acquired by Pursuant, a comprehensive fundraising consultancy that serves ministries, health organizations, and educational institutions. Pursuant’s expertise in fundraising outside of the local congregation provides RSI with unparalleled access to resources and technology to help advance the Kingdom. Some of Pursuant’s ministry clients include Moody Bible Institute, Moody Radio, FamilyLife, Love Worth Finding, Turning Point Ministries, and Dallas Theological Seminary.
Today, we continue to build on this solid foundation and have been blessed to partner with over 10,000 churches that have committed over $10 billion for ministry needs.
While we appreciate a rich history and strong tradition, we are not content to let our history become our story. Our story continues to evolve, to embrace the future, and to identify the most creative resources of the day to fulfill our mission of helping the local church grow the Kingdom.
