Bakersfield, CA – St. John’s Lutheran Church & School is nearing completion of their capital campaign to retire current building mortgage indebtedness and build a new Junior High Building and Conference Center-Fellowship Hall. With about 80% of families visited, they have raised more than $6 M.
Several quotes are representative of the leadership at St. John’s leadership and the proven methods of James D. Klote & Associates.
“These visits are so valuable for building and strengthening our relationships.”
“This has been a great opportunity to listen and provide feedback.”
Campaign Co-Chair, Bob Schneider, said, “We could not have done this without our Klote consultant, leading and encouraging us and keeping us on task.”
Pastor Eric, along with Pastor Dennis Hilken and Campus Administrator Spencer Peregoy shared the same thoughts: “We chose J.D. Klote and Associates because they offered by far the most intensive Capital Campaign. The best part of the process for us was the feasibility study, where we were able to build consensus and enthusiasm for the campaign that followed. The campaign itself was a lot of work, but there is no substitute for the face-to-face relationships that happen through the visits.”
