I would like to share with you how tremendously impressed I am with the services you are providing to St. John’s. I will honestly tell you that as Parish Administrator I was selfishly full of anxiety about the Vestry’s decision to begin this huge endeavor during Advent. I understood the theory and marketing advantages but knew that any campaign of this size was going to be a lot of work and the thought of beginning it during an already busy season for the church office created a lot of angst for me.
Then, enter J.D. Klote and Associates and the consultant! He immediately put me at ease with his quiet, pleasing personality, and his “don’t worry, that’s why I’m here” assurance that it would be ok. And he was right. He quickly has won the support of the staff and clergy, as well as many of the parishioners. An amazing new interest level among the parishioners is already evident after only his first few weeks here.
The presentations so far have been very attractive, professionally prepared, and have captured the attention of a somewhat uninvolved parish.
I commend the consultant and J. D. Klote Associates for the quality and professionalism of the services we are being provided, as well as the professional support for the staff as we go through this process. Kudos to you and your staff!
