I am writing to thank you for the guidance that Klote and Associates, and particularly the consultant, provided in helping the Lutheran Church of the Ascension plan and execute the Capital Campaign for the renovation and restoration of the congregation’s facilities. The consultant’s dedication to our campaign, his support for our campaign committee, his organizational skills in creating support materials, and his interest in and even advice for our project managers made his presence invaluable as we moved forward to raise almost 5 times our 2016 budget. Klote and Associates’ enthusiasm and insights created a successful outcome, even during a time of pastoral vacancy and interim pastoral leadership.
Klote and Associates’ dedication to heartfelt Christian Stewardship and excellent campaign planning not only “sold” Ascension’s leaders on your services for our campaign, but also proved to inspire excellent preliminary commitments. Thank you for your example of what it means to give in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I trust that our paths will cross again. If there is, at any time, an opportunity for me to recommend your stewardship services to a congregation, I will be happy to do so. God bless you as you continue to enable congregations to meet their stewardship goals.
