We also provide consultation and church growth assistance to include feasibility studies, along with our capital campaigns; we provide assistance with your on-going stewardship efforts, and church growth needs.
Our vision is to assist you in becoming an even more vibrant and growing Christian community of faith. We raise more funds than our competitors through the following capital campaign process:
- We begin by assisting you to develop a clear vision that defines the compelling reasons why someone would give to the capital campaign. We work to bring the vision alive in the hearts and minds of your members, so they will consider a gift of sacrifice and not simply convenience.
- We recommend conducting a Feasibility Study to set a realistic goal for your capital campaign — a goal that is attainable and one in which members can see success and are willing to give as they can to meet the needs outlined in your vision.
- Our proven campaign process, which maximizes your results and energizes church volunteers, is the culmination of more than 75 years of experience providing more on- and off-site services than any other firm. We assign a campaign consultant to work with church leadership but use a team concept to ensure wise use of volunteer time. We shoulder most of the organizational and administrative responsibilities, thereby affording our clients the opportunity to focus on customizing a campaign to their unique needs and limit staff time.
The company’s success is a testament of our unique ability to combine the vision of your faith community, the commitment of your people, and the empowering work of the Holy Spirit to deliver a successful campaign.
