We have spiritually, as well as financially, grown through our work with J.D. Klote & Associates. Our church had not run a capital campaign for fifty years. The work that we needed to do was extensive after years of deferred maintenance and “getting by” with a facility that had been built in 1952. The work of the campaign was tedious and difficult as our membership had not been challenged for many years. Our consultant worked tirelessly side by side with our campaign committee. Our church now knows how to ask for what is needed to fund the mission and ministry of our church. I am confident that giving will increase and our project will in time be completed. I am most grateful for both the increased commitment to our project and the stewardship education of our members.
