St. Alban’s Episcopal Church Moves into a Capital Campaign


For Immediate Release
September 12, 2016

Waco, TX – The findings of St. Alban’s four-week Feasibility Study, that included 12 Focus Group Meetings, validated to the vestry that now is the time to proceed with a Capital Campaign. The Vestry approved the Klote recommendation to proceed with a Capital Campaign under the direction of a Steering Committee. The Campaign will begin immediately with a goal of raising $6 million.

All parish members were invited to attend Readiness Assessment meetings during the past 4 weeks. An overwhelming majority of the participants supported the proposed plans, which involve the construction of a new Parish Hall, education space for children, youth, & adults, office suite, and playground.

This historic seventy-year-old church was literally built on a rock as reported in the Waco Tribune in 1946. She has served the community of Waco, Texas in countless ways. Over the last three years, St. Alban’s has experienced significant growth, particularly among families with children. This recent movement to serve the coming generations is just a reflection of the DNA this congregation has always demonstrated in reaching new people.

The campaign will be directed by James D. Klote & Associates, Inc., JDK&A, a full-time, on-site capital stewardship consulting firm based in Falls Church, Virginia, recently ranked the #1 church consulting firm in the United States by Volkart, a market research firm in Minnesota. Russell Floyd, Campaign Director with James D. Klote and Associates stated, “The clergy and lay leadership are similar in their faith and action to those who founded St. Alban’s on the corner of Waco Dr. and 29th Street seventy years ago.”
