Contact: Jerry Schriever, 770-754-0254

ATLANTA, Mar. 31 /Christian Newswire/ -- The highest honor for career attainment in Christian money management education, the Christian Stewardship Network's Lifetime Achievement Award, was presented to Howard Dayton, co-founder of Crown Financial Ministries, at its recent 2009 Forum in Tampa, Florida.

To the capacity crowd, CSN President Jerry Schriver summarized highlights
in development of professional stewardship ministry in local churches through Dayton's books, curricula, videos and radio ministry.

Mr. Dayton was recognized as a pioneering stewardship professional who has effectively and strategically advanced the message of biblical stewardship and generosity across the globe. He founded Crown Ministries, which merged with the ministry started by Larry Burkett in 2000. He served as CEO from 1985-2007 as a full-time unpaid volunteer. In that period, more than 58 million people worldwide were taught God's way of managing money through Crown Financial Ministries. The firm's website is:

In his acceptance remarks, Dayton credited "the inspired wisdom of Jesus Christ" for development and growth of Crown. He also singled out his wife, Bev, for her love and support as a foundational contributor to his ministry efforts.

The Daytons have collaborated on a new book, Money and Marriage God's Way, published by Moody Publishers. It will be released Wednesday, April 1.

The Christian Stewardship Network is a ministry of stewardship pastors and leaders who serve in the local church. More information about the award and the organization may be found at: http://www.ChristianStewardshipNetwork.com/
