I have been attending Anchor Baptist Church from their beginning and have been a member for 14 years. Our growth was a surprise to many since traditional churches are becoming a thing of the past. During this time a debt was incurred first for land, then a sanctuary and then a Sunday School/Recreation Building. Because of a minister leaving which caused some members to leave, the debt payment began to eat up a large portion of our ministry budget. A campaign to pay off this debt was needed.
Members were very reluctant at first to enlist an outside company to run a campaign. The consultant has been a blessing and has ignited enthusiasm among our leaders and many members not yet involved in the process. His input and guidance have proven to all the leaders that we could not have done this ourselves. He has put us at ease and his work ethic is superb. The hours he put in and his experience has been priceless. He is teaching us and leading us and has become part of our family. Our experience with J.D. Klote has been a very satisfying and rewarding experience. The time and expertise provided by the consultant resulted in a successful campaign to reduce our mortgage debt. We could not have accomplished this on our own. The consultant is very professional, knowledgeable and people-oriented. He inspired the committee to finish the task before us and kept our enthusiasm up. His experience as a pastor and church consultant was a plus. We appreciate the kindness and patience shown by him.
