I am always thankful to join Jesus on His mission. I was blessed to be one of the Presenters at our Focus Groups here at Cross Evangelical Lutheran Church, Yorkville, IL. Our church is praying to God to guide us on how best to align our facility with the ministry and mission, and to know His timing. We chose JD Klote & Associates to conduct a Readiness Assessment. The consultant’s gentle, yet firm, leadership helped our Presentation Team to clearly explain to the congregation what is needed to be done to move forward.
I have been involved with two other previous Capital Campaigns. My heart is filled with excitement knowing that the Focus Group process built trust and unity in the Body through open communication and listening to the feedback. Having the consultant involved in the daily leadership and encouraging us has been so valuable. His organizational skills kept us focused and excited through the 20 Focus Groups.
I feel it was a joyous journey and I learned a lot. So thankful to have worked closely with our team and the consultant, realizing the Campaign days are ahead of us.
The firm foundation of a 136-year “Faith” legacy is ours to build upon for this and the next generation.
